Controversial Ghanaian comedienne, Afia Schwarzenegger has stated that her newly launched foundation is geared towards making women see that marriage is not a yardstick for success.
According to the comedienne, her foundation got support from an agency in the US after a video showed her stark naked and being harassed with acid by her estranged husband who caught her in bed with another man.
“During all the hullabaloo about my nudity on social media, God used that to bless me. A week after the video went viral, I was contacted by some Domestic Violence Association from America.
“They were a group of medical doctors who came together to form an organisation that supports domestic violence victims and also to empower women.
“Initially, they thought I had been affected by the acid attack but thanks to God nothing happened to him.
“They later encouraged me to put up a domestic violence foundation to empower women through my lifestyle and make women understand that marriage is not a yardstick of success.
“Through the support from my foreign partners, Leave to Live Foundation was built and we have been able to impact a lot of women”, Afia Schwarzenegger disclosed.
