14th Salifest

Salifest 2021 was again successfully held online due to the pandemic. We had films and photos from around the world and a celebration on Zoom. For more detailed report see Salifest 2021

13th Salifest

13th Salifest

Due to the Covid19 pandemic we had to hold the 13th Salifest online.

It was sad not to meet, exchange and celebrate in person, but we did get a lot of participation from all over the world! Lovely music from Africa as well as the UK, well-wishers & photos of support from many continents and countries, dance workshops and even a “how to cook Salifest Food” video. As usual we had all backgrounds and age groups involved

Please see the films and more here

And more photos are on our Social Media pages: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages & Youtube channel.

Facemask Fundraising whilst activities are on Hold

Due to the Covid19 Virus all our activities are currently on hold. Both in UK and in Guinea social distancing and lock-down measures are in force.

Hanna is donating 25 % of the tailored facemasks ( Hanna Heiss ) she makes and sells to come to the rescue with urgent medical needs in Guinea. We have already been able to help our partners running the community Centre in Guinea with health emergencies. It’s very appropriate – the masks protect our health and then help with urgent health needs in a country where there are many dangerous diseases and no easy access to adequate healthcare! ?
