In collaboration with Patrick Vernon OBE, we launched Majonzi Fund to support culturally appropriate mental health services and memoria for those who have lost loved ones due to Covid-19.
The Majonzi Fund raised just over £97,000 and we have already disbursed the first round of grants to successful applicants. Donate to the Majonzi Fund
What can people use the funds for?
The grant cannot be used for headstones or funeral costs, but it can be used to erect memorial park benches, plant trees, have community lunches, commission works of art, hold memorial events and make tributes to commemorate the lives of their loved ones. If you would like to apply for support, visit majonzi-fund.com to find out more.
A new public artwork by artist Henny Beaumont, commissioned by the Majonzi Fund, is displayed in Newington Green, London. The piece is commemorating members of London’s Black and Minoritised communities who have lost their lives to the Covid-19 pandemic. Buy an artwork by artist Henny Beaumont in aid of the Majonzi Fund
