A Special Presentation by Geoff Stewart For The Delta Hotel
Natural disasters seem to be plaguing the planet globally and nowhere have the affects been felt more than in Africa where acute malnutrition is a leading cause of death in certain areas. AABW and the Delta Hotel are determined to raise significant funds through this upcoming concert and the Government of Canada will generously match the donations of Canadians until September 16, 2011. Money raised will go to support the work of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement who have a strong presence in the region, and will be helping people recover their livelihoods as well as providing immediate emergency relief.
