Over the next two weeks South Africa’s world-renowned singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka will commemorate her work as a humanitarian, as a singer, and as a Roll Back Malaria and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Through raising awareness and resources to defeat malaria, and advocating on behalf of women and children, Yvonne has worked tirelessly to bring better health and livelihoods to the people of Africa. To mark her enormous contribution, the Roll Back Malaria Partnership would like to thank her most sincerely for her enduring commitment and support in waging a daily battle against malaria and giving a voice to the vulnerable and voiceless. We plan to share snapshots of her work, her message, and her music over the coming days.
Several concerts have been organised in South Africa ( 26 to 28 March) , a joint UNICEF/RBM Press Conference in Johannesburg on March 31st and other special events in recognition of Yvonne’s work.
Today Yvonne Chaka Chaka performs in Cape Town in order to celebrate her music career and humanitarian work for UNICEF and the Roll Back Malaria Partnership. Watch Yvonne Chaka Chaka’s live performance of ‘Man of the World’ at Mandela Day 2009.
