Therapeutic drumming circles are coordinated by Project Sun and River of Hope to help alleviate many of the symptoms of stress still experienced by those in the Lower 9th Ward, one of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina. The children’s drumming circles have been featured in media stories on CNN and other major news outlets.
Funds will be raised until February 28th, with a total goal of $2000. Donations may be made via Kickstarter here. To see a slideshow of the children of the 9th Ward, click here.
