Benefit VoKu for the Bushulo Mother and Child Speciality Center in Hawassa, Ethiopia

Thursday 14 december 2023, Benefit VoKu for the Bushulo Mother and Child Speciality Center in Hawassa, Ethiopia. Food served from 7pm, no reservation.

We are a crew from former (and present) members of ‘Foodbank Maastricht’, where food is regularly rescued from being thrown away, given away, and transformed into three-course meals, saving hundreds of kilos of food weekly, and feeding hundreds in Maastricht.
On this Thursday, we are going to cook a wonderful three-course meal from rescued ingredients in Joe’s Garage, raising money for the healthcare of mothers and children in the south of Ethiopia.
As part of the safe motherhood program, the „Bushulo Mother and Child Speciality Center“ in Hawassa supports women during and after pregnancy. Given that the mortality rate in young mothers as well as new-borns is still extremely high in Ethiopia, structures like this one are urgently needed. There, women are receiving information about hygiene and nutrition during pregnancy, as well as information on risks while giving birth.
