Intimate and uniquely presented live music benefit concert, MAHIMA was launched in November 2009 in honor of and to raise funds for our friend the late Monique "Mahima" Geourzoung as she battled the effects of cancer.
In keeping with Monique’s wishes, ZEN will continue to host the event annually as a benefit concert for all other cancer patients of the HOPE INSTITUTE. This institution opened its doors in 1963 and today continues to provide top quality treatment and care for cancer patients in Jamaica, at little or no cost to patients. The Institute is solely funded by small government grants and kind private donations. As the sole facility of its kind in Jamaica it faces a unique challenge in keeping its doors open.
