28Nov - Ebola Fundraiser

28Nov – Ebola Fundraiser

The Afri-Youth club is hosting its first dinner fundraiser on November 28 in the Forum. This night will be a time for building community, eating delicious African food, learning about Ebola and most importantly supporting those affected by the disease.

Funds raised will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders Canada (MSF) for Ebola victims in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia: the countries with the most cases. Get involved and make a difference one helping hand at a time. All are welcome!

“An important new group on campus, the Afri-Youth Club, is organizing a valuable event to inspire local community engagement at Augustana and across Camrose,” says Dean Allen Berger. “I hope you will become involved.”

“A donation to MSF will help provide medical humanitarian assistance to people suffering due to conflict, disease, natural disaster, or healthcare exclusion in nearly 70 countries around the world,” says organizer Sylvia Tulus. “The donation for “One Night In Africa” will be specifically donated to Ebola victims in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia as these are the countries with the most cases.”

Date: November 28th 2014.

Venue: Forum building, University Of Alberta Augustana Campus.

Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00pm

Purpose of Event: Fundraiser for Ebola victims in support of “Doctors without Borders”.

Purpose of the Club: To educate the Augustana and Camrose community about Africa; its culture, diversity, uniqueness and to create community among all nationalities. Also, specifically to address stereotypical issues about Africa by exposing the unseen aspects of the continent.
