The annual Goodness & Mercy Foundation, Inc. ninth annual “Hands across Africa” Gala will be held Saturday, April 24, 2010 – 7:00P.M. at the historic Savannah Marriott Riverfront. A Silent Auction will begin at 6:00P.M.

Proceeds from this event will help those who cannot help themselves. Goodness & Mercy’s founder, Dr. Eugene Nwosu and sixteen volunteers, Twelve from Savannah, one from Atlanta, Georgia, one from Washington, DC, one from Dallas, Texas, and one from Detroit, Michigan, put aside their busy schedules for ten days and traveled at their own expense to Ajalli, Nigeria to treat hundreds of patients who are without medical care. The group, which included doctors, pharmacists, ophthalmologists, nutritionists, and others, buckled down for what was perhaps one of the most challenging missions ever.

Despite these challenges, the statistics were unbelievable: 2659 patients were seen during the March 20-29, 2009 Nigeria mission. Donation is only $75.00. All proceeds will benefit the annual medical missions to Africa.Again this year, the well-known Savannah Arts Academy Skylite Jazz Band, under the direction of Michael Hutchinson, will provide the entertainment. Dawn Baker, Anchor/Reporter – WTOCTV, will serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies.
