Dr. Kemi Dasilva Ibru is one woman who selflessly dedicates herself to the wellbeing of women and children, particularly victims of social deprivation. She is a gynecologist and the Founder of Women at Risk International Foundation [WARIF], a rape crisis Centre that offers free medical services and psychosocial counselling to female victims of rape in Nigeria. The WARIF Centre also offers legal aid to its patients, to ensure that rape perpetrators are brought to book. In addition to legal aid, The WARIF Centre offers less privileged patients vocational empowerment, to help them make the best of their lives.

She also sits as a member of the board of Erelu Adebayo Foundation [ERAF], a Non-Profit Organisation that provides relief and assistance to widows and orphans in Nigeria, particularly in communities where HIV menace and unemployment are on the rise.

Dr. Kemi Dasilva is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University. Her selfless contributions to the Nigerian community earned her a spot on NIPRO’s Global Top 40 under 40 Nigeria Female Professionals. She is truly a ray of hope to so many, and we can’t but love her.
