Apart from being a talented musician, Jerusha also is a practicing medical doctor. She served as a military doctor in strife-torn Liberia as a member of the United Nations humanitarian effort and was chosen by Love Life (South Africa’s largest HIV/AIDS Awareness Organization) as a role model for South Africa’s youth. She featured as an icon in Love Life’s “Get Attitude” campaign. If all of this was not enough, Jerusha also presented for popular the TV Magazine program Eastern Mosaic at the International Indian Film Academy Awards in Sheffield, UK.
Jerusha is donating a large percentage of her forth-coming album sales to the non-profit organization Keep A Child Alive (www.keepachildalive.org). The organization supports projects throughout Africa with focus on children orphaned by AIDS.
She currently practices family medicine part-time in Ireland.
