African Drum-Shop Fire Relief Fund

Dear Local Community,
Master Drummer Kwasi and his wife Lisa have lost their drum shop and home and all their belongings to a house fire last night. Let's  support them here to re-build their lives. Every little bit can help!
Addendum: I have been asked by the GoFundMe folk to verify my identiy.  Lisa Walker and I became friends when I moved to Vancouver in 2002 to beging my graduate work in Biology at UBC.  Kwasi was our first drumming teacher since about 2006. Lisa and Kwasi married in a ceremony at Lisa's burnaby-lake little cottage in 2014.  I have spent many beautiful Saturday evenings drumming with Kwasi, Lisa and all the wonderful regulars at the shop.  The community will really miss this gathering place!
Thank you so much to everyone that has donated. I know Lisa and Kwasi really appreciate it!! 
NOTE: this is NOT for California fire relief
