This is an invitation to an exhibition An evening of Art by Suchi Chidambaram in aid of MAD 4 Africa at Kindred London, Bradmore House, Queen Caroline Street W6 9BW. Please save the date Friday May 17, 6-9 pm
I was introduced to Make a Difference (MAD) 4 Africa through Alison Hawksley, a dear friend. They are a small UK charity, run exclusively by enthusiastic volunteers. They work with sustainable, grassroots projects across East and Central Africa, with a particular focus on Southern Province, Rwanda where their story first began in 2009. Their focus is on education and the provision of physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation services for children with disabilities in rural areas. Their ASFA Physiotherapy centre project was launched in September 2014 with a vision to provide sustainable inpatient and outpatient physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation services. Early intervention to facilitate independence and maximise function is key to everything they do to fully realise each one of their patient’s potential. They work to support and encourage social inclusion of all patients and their families. After much work, the physiotherapy clinic is up and running and impactful. The next stage is to deliver a building fit for purpose so the clinic can be accredited to local healthcare authorities and become sustainable. There is much work to do but they believe that by working together, we can make a difference.
We will have a short presentation on their progress so far and future plans on the day.
This Exhibition will include specially created works on Muganza, Rwanda along with some of my new paintings. 15% of all painting sales will be donated to their project.
Dancers, oil on canvas, 30 x 30 cm, inspired by a photograph from Alison’s travels to Muganza, will be available by silent auction, subject to a reserve of £500. Estimate £600-£800. Kindly email me your bids.
Kindred London, is a new, beautiful co-working community space in Hammersmith who have generously donated their venue for the event so entry is free and includes a glass of wine. There’s a lovely bar at Kindred for those who may want more! Kindred can also take electronic donations should you wish to help build the ASFA centre.
