The Aunt Landa Market Square is the only market square allows the needy buy food, clothes, medicine and almost every other thing they need to survive for free at the price of the “Aunt Landa Love Currency (Zero Naira wrapped in God’s love).
Speaking on this year’s market square, George-David remarked, “There’s so much pain, lack and suffering due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Life as we know it is no more for everyone, so you can imagine how bad things are for the less privileged.
“We are still focused on reaching the unreached because LOVE is an ACTION word but a lot of restructuring has been put in place to make the Auntlanda’s Market Square Covid19 safe.
“Strict measures such as the no-mask-no-entry rule, temperature check and hand-washing will be made compulsory at the entrance.”
There would be vocational trainings courtesy AuntLanda’s Free Tertiary Academy, Free Medicals, Clothes,FoodStuff, Home Equipments, Bedspace for the Homeless, Auntlanda’s Wonderland, Photostudio and many more.
