Fabrica continues its collaboration with Stop TB Partnership of the World Health Organization, with the production of a series of videos about Craig David’s latest visit to South Africa as Goodwill Ambassador for the Stop TB Partnership.
Craig David, who was appointed on 24th of March, on World TB Day, says: "Music is a universal language. I believe that through people's love of music we can increase knowledge and understanding and support people affected by TB. I hope that people who feel inspired by my music will also feel moved by what I have to say about TB”.
The videos will be used through different channels to spread awareness of tuberculosis.
The suspense has finally come to an end: the 20 winners of IT'S:MY:TIME were announced.
