Artistes to rock charity gig

HARARE - Several established and upcoming musicians will perform today at Alex Sports Club at a charity event to raise funds for Tichakunda Children’s Home and Yemurai HIV/Aids Support Group.

The charity event, that will begin at 11am and will end at 4pm, will feature popular female bassist and singer Edith WeUtonga, DJ Stavo, Diana Samkange, gospel artist Tahembalami, Tony G (ZiFM), poet So Profound, Vera, upcoming artiste Rugare Natalie Chimombe, Raheem Beetx and many other upcoming artistes.

Lindsay Madzivanzira from My Birthday Wish Organisation — the organisers of the charity gig- told the Daily News that today’s concert was part of her organisation’s efforts to use birthdays of artistes and public personalities as platforms of raising funds for charitable causes.

“My Birthday Wish Organisation is an organisation that assists people with birthdays to do a charitable act on their special day. It has dawned upon us, that as a people we wait for aid from NGOs or external parties, when we could make a difference with the little that we have.

“This month we are celebrating Rugare Natalie Chimombe’s birthday. She is an upcoming artist who is passionate about helping less privileged children as well as children who come from homes that have been wrecked by the HIV/Aids virus.

“Her wish is to give the children a pleasant Christmas as well as bless them with the basics a normal child needs to excel,” said Madzivanzira

She is an upcoming artist and would like to collaborate with other artists and the Rotaract Club to host a fundraiser concert for Tichakunda children’s home as well as Yemurai HIV/Aids Support Group, all proceeds will go to the two charities. The entry charge will be $5,” said Madzivanzira.

The concert organiser urged music lovers to attend the event that seeks to assist Tichakunda Children’s Home and Yemurai HIV/Aids Support Group.

Tichakunda Children’s Home, situated in Hatcliff, Harare, has a pre-school, primary school and a high school.

They look after 18 boys and 12 girls at the home but the school has more children who are less privileged, who do not live there but are fed breakfast, lunch and a light meal before they leave for home at 16:00 hours.

“Yemurai HIV/Aids Support Group is situated in Dzivaresekwa extension at the Yemurai Clinic. They have a total of 30 children and 15 adults. They also meet every Wednesday at the clinic,” said Madzivanzira.?
