Hillsboro High School seniors Yousuf Ahmad and Hailey Simon are spearheading a citywide interfaith initiative to benefit the children of Iraq.
The two are coordinating a concert to benefit No More Victims, a nonprofit organization committed to restoring the health and well being to victims of war and advocating for peace, at 6 p.m., Friday, April 18, at Rocketown.
“We actually were looking for a benefit to raise money for,” Yousuf said. “What we were looking for was a new charity that isn’t professionally staffed and didn’t have millions of dollars so our contributions could really make a difference. We just wanted to try something new.”
