A gathering of musicians, artists, performers and their fans always seems to make friends of everyone. So when volunteers from the Bern-Aare, Switzerland, Kiwanis Club add the aroma of freshly fried fischknusperli— fish nuggets— to the International Buskers Street Music Festival, they make friends too.
“Every year, we celebrate the Buskers Festival in Bern," says member Theo Riesen. "Thousands of people come to our capital city. It's an excellent opportunity to present Kiwanis and collect money for The Eliminate Project."
While making new friends and strengthening old friendships, more than 30 members of the Bern-Aare Club collected US$5,000 to save and protect mothers and babies. — Cindy Dashnaw
