Southern Sudan NetsWork Benefit Concert

Please come and join the children of Boulder who are working to raise money to provide protective bed netting for the children of Chukudum in Southern Sudan.

A Benefit Concert featuring local singer songwriter Jeff Kagan & Paige Doughty, the Sudanese “Didinga Singers” and the Boulder Jewish Day School choir will be held as part of a community-wide fund raising effort to send 2,000 bed nets to protect children aged 5 and under in Chukudum, South Sudan.

For $10 each, a mosquito net can be provided to families who otherwise could not afford the protection that these nets provide from malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa.

Please consider having your child participate in this educational and philanthropic endeavor.

This event is sponsored by the Southern Sudan Health Partnership (SSHP), the Boulder Jewish Day School (BJDS), Har Hashem and Bonai Shalom.

The concert will be held on Sunday, January 16, 2011, 12:00pm – 2:30pm (Lunch will be provided). At the Shapiro Home, 6391 Swallow Lane, Boulder, CO 80303. RSVP:    rsvp@bjds.org or (303) 449-5569. Suggested Donation:  2 bed nets ($20)

The Southern Sudan Health Partnership (SSHP) is a Boulder-based coalition of religious institutions, schools, youth groups, the Didinga Tribe and other local organizations assisting in the development of health delivery infrastructure in Chukudum, South Sudan.  NetsWork, a project of the SSHP, is committed to providing insecticide-treated mosquito bed nets to all children under 5 in Chukudum.

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.

  1. Already most of the developed countries have started to provide donation for the welfare of African countries. Netswork is providing an excellent opportunity for the people who love to donate money to the poor people. Mosquito nets can be the best solution to prevent Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya and other diseases that are caused by mosquitoes.
