Portland Eat for Equity Raises Money for a Tanzanian clinicposted: Monday, March 22nd, 2010
This month, come together for Tanzania.
Join us SUNDAY MARCH 28 to eat good food, drink good drinks, and do some greater good for people living in Moshi, Tanzania.
Last month in NE Portland, you donated $425 dollars for Tibetan Children’s Village, doing work to educate and preserve the culture of exiled Tibetan children in northern India. Wow! Thanks everyone who made this night a success: our hosts and all who shared the delicious meal! It was great to see many new faces; let’s keep expanding our circle!
In Tanzania, about 5.4% of the population–including 140,00 children–are living with HIV/AIDS. Our friend Dr. Thu Vu works with these children in a clinic in Moshi, Tanzania. The hospital she works with serves hundreds of children who come in every month for their HIV medication, which can extend their life by as much as twenty years. Although they receive the medication for free, many of the children are not well-enough nourished for the medicine to be effective. The money we raise will go towards helping meet basic needs for these children.
Come together to benefit the children’s HIV clinic at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center. You’ll get to hear stories and see photos from Sharon, recently returned from travels to Moshi. We’ll enjoy an eclectic Tanzanian feast that will include:
Matoke–stew with plantains
Maharagwe–spiced beans in coconut milk
Rice and Chappati
Eat for Equity: Tanzania community supper
