Doctors Without Borders

PLYMOUTH, MICHIGAN (Hometownlife.com) - Novi High School's second annual IB International Talent Show was held on March 17, and it raised $2,537 for the international organization Doctors Without Borders. Over 300 people attended the event held in Fuerst Auditorium.

The show featured 20 student acts representing various countries. The program included several dances (Irish, Greek, Indian and Latin American), many songs including one sung in Chinese and another in Latin, instrumental pieces from German and French composers, as well as a Japanese traditional drum team performance.

The production was organized by Novi's IB diploma candidates from the junior and senior classes under the supervision of their Volunteer CAS Coordinator Barbara Clift. The candidates from the junior class worked as emcees, prepared the programs and tickets, recruited and advertised for the show. The senior candidates organized the International Food Court. During the intermission the audience was able to sample food from several different countries at the 10 tables set up. In addition, many juniors and seniors were performers in the show.

“I am so pleased the students were able to organize and pull off another successful show. The students worked really hard preparing for the event and should be proud of all the money they were able to raise for Doctors Without Borders” said Clift.

Doctors Without Borders is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. Today it provides aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflicts, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, and natural disasters. It provides independent impartial assistance to those most in need and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.
