Song of Sahel SOS
Cover and Statement
Created Dr. Niamh Clune
How Do We Show Solidarity for those confronting starvation
and death in the Sahel region of Africa?
We do what we can. We use what is God-given and free. We use our talent.
Children cannot eat words. Blinded by starvation, they cannot see pictures.
I wondered at the incongruity of this. Talent has value. It raises awareness.
It inspires giving in others. As the Founder and CEO of Plum Tree Books,
I put out a call across social media for artists, poets, writers and photographers
to join me in a Song Of Sahel.
Song of Sahel is an anthology of poetry, fiction, music, art
and photography. This anthology will be launched worldwide
on September 15th on Facebook. Plum Tree Books will publish
this exciting multi-media kindle and and make it available
on Amazon. Proceeds of the sales will go to SOS Sahel,
an NGO working in the Sahel region of Africa.
Song of Sahel, brings together artists from all over the world,
including the UK, US, Ireland, Spain, Sri Lanka, Canada, South America,
India and Australia. It is our aim to raise awareness of the plight of
the people living in the Sahel.
Join us on on September 15th.
