An upcoming art show will contribute to a bigger mission of healing hearts in Africa.
A showcase of art from Rwanda will be on display at Dodson's Jewelers during the month of April.
Emmanuel and Innocent Nkuranga are brothers who run the Inema Arts Center in Kigali, Rwanda. Each year, they visit Spokane to share their talents, stories, and to spread the word about their art center.
The Inema Arts Center supports fair trade practices for the empowerment of communities in impoverished nations like Rwanda.
However spreading the word about their art isn't the only reason Emmanuel and Innocent come to Spokane; the Nkuranga brothers have teamed up with Healing Hearts Northwest, a grassroots non-profit in Spokane that sends heart surgery teams to Rwanda nearly every year to provide life saving care to the people there who need it most.
