BLB has been involved in projects in Beira for many years, and aims to continue mainstream project support in the fields of:
Bristol Link with Beira has a GoFundMe page to build up an emergency reserve fund to respond quickly to any urgent disasterous situation in Beira. This GoFundMe page can also be used for individual and recurring donations, which benefit from Gift Aid. Any surplus to our reserve funds goes to needs identified by communities in Beira, via ADEL Sofala.
Help us raise the final £2,500. The previously well-used Ballet Studio was flooded out during the cyclone in 2019, and has not re-opened to the public. The £9,000 project was initiated by Red Cross volunteer, Nancy Kordouli, who was deployed after the cyclone Idai between 2019 and 2022. She feels that cultural needs are neglected during humanitarian crises, to the detriment of the well-being of local communities. The renovation of the Ballet Studio will provide a safe space for events, classes and training in music and dance. Please show your support and contribute via Nancy’s GoFundMe button below which has additional information and videos. However if you can add UK Gift Aid, please donate via the BLB button above with the comment ‘Ballet’.
