Make a Noise, Make a Difference presents: Mada-Hu-Ha! a charity concert for South East Madagascar
Hundreds of Brisbanites are set to help make a difference in Madagascar next month, simply by seeing live, local music.
On the 16th of September four Brisbane bands will be hitting the stage of a donated charity warehouse in Fortitude Valley to raise funds for Azafady, a charity which connects volunteers with aid projects in Madagascar.
The night will kick off at 7pm with four-piece Shady Bliss, followed by Pink Services, Boss Moxi and Galaxy.
A group of Brisbane artists have also donated their work to be sold in an auction on the night. The event is 18+ and BYO, only an entry donation is required on the door.
All of the profit from this event will go to Azafady, and Made a Noise Make a Difference is hoping to raise awareness of the extreme poverty many Madagascans live in everyday.
The even will lay a foundation for Make a Noise, Make a Difference, a new organisation put together by a few passionate young Brisbane folk to raise awareness and money to help fight poverty and environmental issues overseas.
One of the organisers Zoe Buckley Lennox and friend Frances Boothroyd have decided to volunteer over in Madagascar for 10 weeks as a part of the Pioneer program run by Azafady.
They will be living and working alongside remote village communities helping them to build a better future for themselves.
While in Madagascar, Zoe and Frances may be involved in building wells to provide clean water, protecting villagers from the spread of cholera, building schools in rural communities, helping in community lead conservation initiatives, establishing community market gardens and beehives to improve nutrition and provide villagers with alternative incomes.
