From the 26th of February until the 2th of March we are organizing the Africa week! During this week several fun activities will be held to get to know MUSTANGH and Ghana better. There will be a pub quiz on Tuesday, you can go ‘African Zumba’ dancing on Wednesday and Thursday is movie night. Throughout the week we will also have a lottery running. You can already buy your ticket for 1€ and win amazing prizes! We will sell tickets from Monday till Thursday, 11:30 – 13:30 in the Mensa (UNS40) and be available for any questions.
During the weeks before the Holidays we spread Christmas letters about our Foundation throughout Maastricht. We are happy to announce that we raised a nice amount of money by this initiative! This will be well used for, among other things, the sponsoring of the education of Mr. Tabi to become an anesthesiologist. On behalf of the board of MUSTANGH we would like to thank everyone whom has supported us!
With the help of Wilde Ganzen the West Gonja Hospital was able to purchase a new car! This car was very much needed as before they only had one old car and no ambulance. This new car will be used for transfer to rural areas, the transport of medicine, the pick up of new students and if needed the transport of patients.

Monday 6 March, the monthly pubquiz of the oldest cafe in Maastricht, In Den Ouden Vogelstruys, took place. Guido Gerrits, employee of the Vogelstruys and organizer of the quiz, invited MUSTANGH to be there as a guest. After sharing some flyers and telling about MUSTANGH, we started the quiz. The quiz was totally in MUSTANGH-style, with for example a round with African questions and a round with African music. Besides, we had a lotery in the break, of which the proceeds goes to MUSTANGH as well. Unfortunately, the MUSTANGH teams were not able to beat the other teams. Nevertheless, it was a very nice evening, and we raised €162,10 for MUSTANGH!
