COME SUPPORT: Aid2Africa Benefit Concert (Mar. 12)

Aid2Africa - Flyer

Everyday millions world-wide live without adequate and proper medical care. Each year California State University San Marcos School of Nursing takes a select group of student applicants to provide international nursing care and relief to underserved
populations. Our goal includes providing quality nursing care/treatments and health education to the ill, homeless and impoverished families living in Swaziland, Botswana; Lesotho, Southern Africa. Unfortunately, these groups are without even the basic supplies needed for medical attention and care.

The students of CSUSM School of Nursing are hoping to secure donations to aid us in providing care to these vulnerable populations in March-April 2011. By organizing a benefit concert, the “Aid 2 Africa Project” team and GSYAM (Good Shepherd Young Adult Ministry) are collaborating to raise sufficient funds for medical supplies and other basic necessities for the impoverished villages.

WHEN: Saturday, March 12, 2011.
WHERE: Good Shepherd Parish Hall, 8200 Gold Coast Drive, San Diego, Ca 92126.
TIME: 7:00pm, doors open at 6:15pm.
Tickets prices: the week of the event $12.
