A fundraising dinner in Merced Friday will help fund a medical mission trip to Nigeria.
The Grace Outreach Coalition will host the dinner at 6 p.m. at the Family Life Center. The event will also include a live auction, and tickets run for $15.
Proceeds from the event will help support GOC's medical mission to Nigeria in June. In addition, funds will help fund life-straw water filters for victims of schistosomiasis in the state of Niger in Nigeria. Bilharziasis, also known as schistosomiasis, is a parasitic infection caused by schistosoma worms acquired from water contaminated with freshwater snails. People become infected when they come in contact with contaminated water.
