An important message re: COVID-19
& Uhuru Health Festival
Uhuru! (Freedom Greetings):
We know that we are all focused on the health of ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities and with five weeks until the scheduled 2020 Uhuru Health Festival/ One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace, we wanted to provide an update to our community and partners regarding our plans in light of Coronavirus/COVID-19.
Our first priority will always be the safety and well-being of our community, vendors, volunteers, partners, staff and everyone who contributes to making the Uhuru Health Festival such a powerful, entertaining and incredible experience. We will continue to evaluate the situation and use all available resources and intelligence to that end.
To combat the spread of the virus, the steering committee has decided to postpone the Uhuru Health Festival untilJune 20, 2020 and resume the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace on May 30, 2020. We are currently working on measures to safely put on the remaining markets.
