Manu Chao to Donate Money to Children’s Hospital in Croatia

manuchaoCult French-born Spanish singer Manu Chao will donate part of the proceeds from his upcoming Croatian concert to a children’s hospital in the capital Zagreb.

Chao, who has had considerable success, particularly in Europe, firstly with his band Mano Negra and then as a solo artist, will donate revenue from the sale of t-shirts and other memorabilia to help the children’s hospital raise money to purchase a hematology analyzer used to analyze blood and properly diagnose disease.
