Funky Floetry

Fundraiser for Mother Health International

Blessings Bring Challenges

Mother Health International (MHI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to respond and provide relief to pregnant women and children in areas of disaster, war and extreme economic poverty. We are committed to reducing maternal, infant and child mortality rates by creating culturally competent and sustainable birth centers using the midwifery model of care.

This year, Mother Health International has received amazing news! We have been approved for the donation of an IMEC Maternal Newborn Health Pod, which is equipped with amazing lifesaving tools such as oxygen and an ultrasound machine. As wonderful as this blessing is, it is not without its challenges. In order to implement the use of such equipment, current staff must receive training, new staff must be identified and hired, and the infrastructure for its proper use established.
What does this all mean??? We need your help! Donations in any amount will go directly to the implementation of this wonderful gift. Please show your support for birthing women in Northern Uganda, let us join together and make quality healthcare accessible for all women!

Funky Floetry fuses with Issyra Gallery's Open Mic Night

Friday, May 15th, 8pm

Issyra Gallery; 300 Observer HighWay, Buliding C, Hoboken NJ

Graciously hosted by the Issyra Gallery of Art, a potent gathering of artists and musicians will come together in celebration and collaboration. Let us utilize this art as a vehicle for social change, and create a tangible difference for birthing mothers in Northern Uganda. Feast your eyes and ears on the funky grooves and moves of Akim Funk Buddha, Tracy Pierre, Kiwi the Child and Capoeira Game brought by Grupo Liberdade and Grupo Au. All this fierce creativity will flow into an Open Mic event that is hosted weekly at the gallery, bringing together the creative talents of the African Diaspora in the NY/NJ area. Let us create together!
