Heroin addiction is a growing problem in Zanzibar, and a group called Muamko (meaning ‘Awakening’) was created two years ago by recovering addicts, and a year ago they decided to forge ahead with creating Drug Free Zanzibar – an NGO dedicated to providing education, rehabilitation and recovery facilities for Zanzibaris in need of help to quit the drug.
Explore Zanzibar Co. Ltd has therefore decided to team up with ‘Drug Free Zanzibar’, in association with Vodacom Foundation & the well-known fashion designer Ally Rehmtullah from Dar es Salaam, along with guest designers like Farouque Abdella, Vida Mahimbo and Kihage, together with International belly dancer Tamalyn Dallal who has danced her way around the world to raise funds for the recovery projects run by Drug Free Zanzibar, to take place during a gala dinner at the Zanzibar Serena Hotel on the 8th of February 2011 at 6:30pm.
This event is scheduled to take place during the world famous Sauti Ya Busara week, under the Busara Xtra platform. Busara Xtra is the name given to the variety of fringe cultural shows and activities happening in Zanzibar during this week.
Come and show your support, of an evening full of fashion, style & music while in the meantime raising funds towards the cause.
This event is sponsored by Vodacom Foundation, Zanzibar Serena Inn, i-View Media, Darling Hair, QMB, Vayle Springs & DarLife.
