Summary of project It is a carnival-like event where we raise awarness of current issues in global health as well as raise money for the charities that strive to redress them. We focused on the following diseases: Leprosy, TB, HIV/AIDS, and Pnuemonia. We used this as a fundraising event to donate to the WHO by selling chocolate covered apples and donuts. Various carnival games were rented, such as a dunk tank to attract participants. In order to participate in the games, a question concerning the diseases must be answered.
