On Saturday 17 November, Solis Netherlands, in co-operation with Christian community Zolder50, raised support for a mobile health clinic in Delhi. At the Bollywood themed fundraiser “Bollywood50”, singer-songwriter Christel Meijer performed, as well as a Bollywood dance group, especially formed for the occasion. Todd Watkins, pastor of Zolder50, was among the dancers. In addition, the visitors danced to the beats of DJ Bernardo Partida and DJ Elisabeth, supported by VJ Avantia.
More than € 2000($ 3000) was raised, which will make a good start for Solis’ partner organization in Delhi ‘Serve India’. Serve India will set up a mobile clinic and bring medical care where it is most needed: the slums. Hundreds of thousands slum dwellers live in poor conditions, without proper sanitation or sufficient health care. Unfortunately, some people are dying of diseases that are preventable or easy to treat.
It is still possible to make your donation by a bank transfer to Stichting Solis Nederland, Triodos Bank 784769397. Please indicate your gift is for Bollywood50.
