Lights, Camera, KARAOKE!
One week ago today Mercy and Truth, in partnership with Fox 4 News’ Sarah J Clark and Commucare’s founder Dr. Florence Moffor, hosted a karaoke fundraising event benefiting our work in Tanzania, East Africa. A night that brought fun, laughter, and a community spirit also helped raise awareness and financial support for
Tanzania is a country plagued with health disparities and limited resources to fight easily preventable diseases. The World Health Organization reports that 54 of every 1000 children born in Tanzania will die before reaching the age of 5. To combat these issues, Mercy and Truth has partnered with Zinduka Development Intiatives Forum (ZDIF), a Tanzanian non-profit organization. Zinduka provides services to communities in Nyamuswa including educational support and microfinancing assistance. Zinduka has also been instrumental in establishing the Malaika Dispensary, a clinic that serves over 70,000 patients.
With support from Zinduka founder Maximillian Madoro and thanks to our friends at Sunset Grill and Kansas City’s own entertainer DebbyZ, the stage was set for our first Celebrity Karaoke Fundraising event. Delicious cuisine, wonderful entertainment, prize drawings, and of course live karaoke by some of our local celebrity favorites proved to be the perfect combination for an evening filled with fun and laughter.
Thanks to all of our supporters for ensuring the success of our event! To learn more about our work and how you can contribute to our efforts in Tanzania visit www.mercyandtruth.com/tanzania.
