Issa’s container to africa
At the beginning of 2020, Issa embarked on a mission to ship a container full of 2nd hand goods, school supplies, surfboards, hospital supplies, furniture, boats, motors and a kit full of tools.
“In my Village, Thonk Essil (South Senegal) it’s very very difficult to get good quality 2nd-hand goods – and if you can you will spend all your money like that” – Issa. But as we all know Australia’s 2nd hand market is off-the-hook and Issa is using this market to get good quality work gear to needed fisherman and carpenters, much needed beds and trolleys to hospitals, books and desks to schools.
Issa Mané and The CInco Royal All Stars have been doing fundraisers for the container over the last couple of years and the project is well off the ground. Help is always needed
Stemming from South Senegal (West Africa), Issa Mané is a Reggae and Musical icon in Newcastle, Australia. While singing in 4 different tongues and playing styles from reggae to hip-hop, Issa is a also a prominent individual in the African and wider community.
