Care for Africa Cocktail Ball 2016
- Get Tickets
We are very excited to announce the date for the 2016 Care for Africa Cocktail Ball which will be held at The Tailrace Centre on the 19th March 2016.

Your ticket includes canapes during the evening, entertainment and live auction plus and 5 drink vouchers.
Where will the funds raised go?
CfA will dedicate the event proceeds of the Cocktail Ball to the installation of water wells in target communities in Tarime. Care for Africa have identified rural communities that have no readily accessible sources of clean safe drinking water, improving this situation is a high priority for these communities, CfA and the local Government in Tarime.
Women and children in these communities walk as far as 16km daily with 20L cans to access water from sources, which are often stagnant dry waterbeds and shared by animals. The water collected can contain high levels of e coli, typhoid and occasionally cholera, which greatly increases the morbidity and mortality rates for the community and is the leading case of infant mortality.
Consequently school attendance is reduced and women are not free to pursue other activities. This leads to an increased cycle of poverty, reduced level of education and opportunities for income generation and restricted access to basic health care.
If you are interested in keeping up to date with our progress in Africa you can do so by joining our growing number of followers on facebook.
Thank you in advance for your kindness & generosity in supporting Care for Africa! We look forward to seeing you there.
