THE PEERA FAMILY
"The Peera family was involved in curating and supporting the visual arts in East Africa for over two decades. In 1970, the dictator Idi Amin nationalized all their assets and forced them to leave their country penniless. Jim Peera, the youngest of five siblings, spent the next years of his life being educated in the West & settling and becoming a successful entrepreneur in America. In 2013, Jim opened Healium Center with his wife (Donna), son (Jeff) and daughter (Haseena) in Candler Park; a healing with the arts interactive sanctuary. The center promotes diversity, peace and self-exploration of the soul using the inner creative as its medicine."
