The AAU basketball team, Utah Mountain Stars, recently returned from a humanitarian trip to Mali, Africa. Zurixx made a generous donation to help cover the cost of various services projects and other humanitarian efforts in the capital city of Bamako and surrounding villages. Mali has a population of 18 million, and half of the population lives in poverty. The average income is $1.25 a day or $1,500 a year.
The service projects that the Utah Mountain Stars assisted with included:
-Finishing the construction of a basketball court including installing the basketball hoops and backboards.
-Providing health care kits, including 150 Days-for-Girls kits, dental/hygiene kits, and new born baby kits.
-Finishing construction of a school including adding windows, doors, and a roof.
-Hosting a basketball skills camp for local boys and girls.
-Installing desks and picnic tables in and around the local schools.
-Providing a set of uniforms for the Mali National team.
Zurixx is proud to support the humanitarian efforts of Utah Mountain Stars.
