IHHP - Maningrida "My Heart Keeps Beating"

Indigenous Hip Hop Projects was so proud to partner with Malabam Health Service, GYS Maningrida and Menzies School of Health Research to work with Maningrida community to create this deadly Music Video 'Heart Keeps Beating'. We brought together many people from the community young and old who have RHD and listened to their powerful and emotion stories and personal experience about living with the disease. We worked with the talented young people and youth workers from Maningrida along with Traditional Songman Diddo and dancer/storyteller Hamish and Solomon. No child should bear the scars of open heart surgery. Rheumatic Heart Disease is preventable if you get to the clinic and get medicine when you have a sore throat or skin infection you will help stop the Strep germ from hurting your heart. If you do have RHD then it is essential for your survival to get a injection of antibiotics every 28 days.
