2013 Art For Health Benefit
Save the Date: Friday, May 24 6:30-9:30PM
Join us at Project Reach in Chinatown, New York City for an art exhibit, silent auction and performance to fund a mobile clinic this summer in rural villages in Cameroon.
Since 2009, the partnership between the U.S. charity organization Bush Medicine Partnership (Drexel University) and Hope International For Tikar People – a Cameroonian community based organization – have served more than 8000 people in the isolated communities in the rain forest of Cameroon.
Art For Health was launched informally by Issa Nyaphaga 5 years ago. An artist, performer and the founder of HITIP, Issa is himself native Tikar and has been living in exile for more than 15 years. To remain in contact with his homeland, Issa founded Hope International For Tikar People. HITIP brings together a wide range of global activists who travel to Tikar country in Cameroon every summer to provide direct support to indigenous communities.
