NOVA Habitat for Humanity Club Humanitarian Concert

On Saturday evening, March 30th 2013, the NOVA Habitat for Humanity Club held a humanitarian concert in the Elementary and Middle School facility. This charitable event featured performances by the NOVA High School Band, Sara Markoska and Actias luna (led by NOVA HS student Viktor Safstrom.) Proceeds from the ticket sale and bake sale were raised towards the Habitat for Humanity Roma Housing Program  (http://www.habitat.org.mk/eng/rhprogram.html) which aims to reduce substandard living conditions for the Roma population in Skopje. Meanwhile, the club held a clothes, food and toys drive for the family of an 31 year- old widow living in substandard conditions in Kumanovo. This family is composed of three young children (of kindergarten and primary school age) and an unemployed mother with a difficult medical condition. Any help that she receives from social security amounts to 3000 denars per month.  With each ticket bought, guests were automatically entered in the lottery which offered prizes from the following sponsors: Vitalia, Oxette, Lush and Nana.  The Habitat club is delighted with the event's outcomes and is thankful to all the guests, volunteers, singers, bands, NOVA security and staff members for warmly offering their help and support to realize this project.
