No Party To Go To?


Then don’t despair, at least if you live here in Göteborg. Save your night for tomorrow (13 October, Saturday) as there will be a dance/mingle party at  Sal A, Axel Dahlströms Torg in Högsbo at around 7 PM.

It is the second year founding anniversary of Stödförening för gatubarn i Manila (Support organization for Streetchildren in Manila).

The entrance ticket is SEK150 and that would include some drinks, food and of course loads of fun! Proceeds of the event will go to Kanlungan, which is the beneficiary non-governmental organization in the Philippines.

The tickets can be bought on-site. For more info, you may contact the organization here. If you cannot attend, there are various means described in their site how you can be of help.

I have no connection with the said organization at all, except for my sympathy to their cause. Here is a picture of me and some friends from last year’s fund-raising event:

Yeah, we were over-dressed! Hahaha! We thought charity galas were supposed to be glamourous like how politicians and elites do it. We (well at least me), had fun on the dance floor anyhow! 

PS. Unfortunately I cannot make it tomorrow due to some conflict in my schedule.

    hey Mogli!Thank you so much for your comment! I totally agree that doing something is better than nothing and my intention was ot at all to bash on those fantastic doctors that save lives. all I am thinking is that there needs to be more things done, but you are right, that may not necessarily be the task of Läkare utan gränser. And also, I didn’t know they did more long term stuff, so thansk for that info 🙂 have a nice weekend!And too bad I’m not in Gothenburg, otherwise I would’ve showed up at that party 🙂

    @Liberty: You’re welcome. For more accurate info, you can take a look at their site here: You will read that they also have long term programs especially in epidemiology where they are called to monitor, diagnose, and control outbreaks of diseases, such as cholera, meningitis, and measles which are very prevalent in underdeveloped countries. After catastrophic events they have follow up projects like help re-build the health sector and provide sanitation experts. I definitely agree with you that more sustainable projects can be done and not just “giving them fish to live for a day.” Happy weekend to you too! What a pity you are not in Götet! 🙂

    haha, in the censured picture of you, you totally look like my brother. And, oh, I wish I knew more tagalog, so I’ll just write down the words I know and try to say something like goodbye: Ikaw tubig olo hindi maganda ako. Yeah, I don’t think that was good….haha. BYe!
