THE MIRACLE AFRICA INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION (MAIF) – Nadia Murabet, Executive Director –

Dear Friends: As Executive Director of the Miracle Africa International Foundation, I want to welcome you to our state-of-the-art website. Here, at this online location you will learn all about the work of the Foundation, particularly as it concerns our important work combating malaria in sub- Saharan Africa. Malaria is making a strong comeback in Africa. In fact, a World Health Organization (WHO) study says that malaria kills someone around the world every 30 seconds, further stating that 90% of malaria’s victims are in sub-Saharan Africa. Malaria kills 3000 children a day in Africa. That’s one million children a year! This is just unacceptable.The Miracle Africa International Foundation is focused on eliminating the conditions which contribute to these incredibly high death rates. We are collaborating with other organizations such as The Diaspora Africa Forum, UNICEF and the African Union to make a difference, and we’re seeking your help as well, to help us purchase and distribute medicines, pesticide-treated mosquito nets, and by simply helping to spread the word about malaria’s devastating re-emergence in Africa, a toll that overshadows HIV/AIDS deaths by orders of magnitude.Please join us in this important work and do whatever you can to help save the life of an innocent child in Africa. As former South African President Nelson Mandela has said: “We hold the destiny of the continent in our hands.” The Miracle Africa International Foundation is taking those words seriously and we hope that you also will take them to heart. 

Nadia Murabet, Executive Director

THE MIRACLE AFRICA INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION (MAIF) – Goals and Objectives –

The MIRACLE AFRICA INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION lives, breathes and operates within an envelope of integrity and good intentions that are fuelled by the following Goals and Objectives. The first objective is that we do everything possible to promote actions and programs designed to foster a better quality of life for Africa’s most vulnerable people. Statement of Principles: The FOUNDATION will provide and increase critical and basic healthcare in Africa – and promote social and economic development. The FOUNDATION will target its full energy on programs that focus on combating malaria – an insect-borne disease that claims the lives of more than ONE MILLION African children each year.

The FOUNDATION will support progressive educational programs and beneficial sports activities for African children. The FOUNDATION strongly promotes Environmental Protection Programs that focus on the proper use and maintenance of Africa’s Natural Resources.
The FOUNDATION promotes and protects Cultural Diversity in Africa and creates programs that support Handicapped Adults and Children. The FOUNDATION supports programs dedicated to uplifting African women, especially via education and microcredit programs.

The FOUNDATION is especially passionate about and focused on creating and supporting programs designed to protect African women and children from the effects of crime, domestic and ethnic violence and the ravages of war. The MIRACLE AFRICA INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION is also optimistic in its promotion of a campaign designed to someday see an African Nation chosen to serve as host country for the International Olympic Games!

We believe that we will achieve these goals by continuing to create and support projects and programs that promote principles of sustainable development, economic stability, good governance – and peace across the African continent. The FOUNDATION salutes and extends recognition to global stakeholders like the Diaspora African Forum, the Global Champions Tour– and other world-class organizations who support programs designed to give back to Africa.
The MIRACLE AFRICA INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION believes that our greatest successes are still ahead of us, and that with the healing winds of your support – and best wishes in our sails, we will make miracles happen in Africa.

ROADS OF FRIENDSHIP & PEACE CONCERT IN AFRICA

The Italian Embassy in Tunis gave a helping hand to face last minute logistic difficulties together with the Tunisian Ministry of Tourism who organized an extraordinary performance on traditional Arab music in the theatre of Hammamet. Moreover, to guarantee the success of the festival in Tunisia it was fondamental the support of the sponsor “Progetto Italia” of Marco Tronchetti Provera.

Inside the charming picture frame of what was the amphitheatre of El-Djem, Riccardo Muti conducted the orchestra and the choir of the Maggio Fiorentino to a few arias of the Metistofele of Boito accompanied by the soloist voices of Alexia Voulgaridon, Keith Ikaia Purdy, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo. During the concert, even other voices echoed in the Tunisian desert. The Maestro Muti interrupted his music to make way to the voice of prayer coming from the Muezzin. That silence, which asted a few minutes, was significative for the purpose of the feeling of brotherhood amongst people and respect towards the Islamic religion which unites us together to one and only God.
