Students at Marymount Manhattan College Raise Funds for Women in DR Congo

Students at Marymount Manhattan College

In December, students at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City performed Ruined, a play about the challenges women face in war-ravaged Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Through the performance, the cast and crew raised $2,700 for Fistula Foundation partner Panzi Hospital in DRC – nearly $1,000 above the fundraising goal they had set for themselves. In a letter to The Fistula Foundation, director David Mold, who also serves as Chair of the university’s Division of Fine & Performing Arts, wrote: “It has been amazing for the students to discover that theatre can move people to take action and they are thrilled to make a difference in the lives of at least six women in the DRC.”
