FEED THE SOUL

In addition to fear of punishment, musicians are dealing with reduced access to funds, food, and heat due the total eradication of their employment. Many are facing the real threat of seeing their loved ones succumb to illness, starvation, and death.

 

The Campaign to Protect Afghanistan's Musicians (CPAM) has partnered with South Asian Arts-uk (SAA-uk), Interplay Theatre and the Daanish Foundation UK's Winter Aid programme to provide life-saving aid to those in need.

 

In Afghanistan, just £40 provides food for a family of 5 for a month. Help us keep the musicians of Afghanistan and their ancient musical cultures alive by giving the gift of life.

All donations accepted through the GoFundMe platform go to the Registered Charity, Daanish Foundation UK, which will distribute this aid directly to the musicians of Afghanistan identified by CPAM who are in desperate need of life-saving support. Thank you for your gift!

HOW IS YOUR MONEY USED?

GROUND SUPPORT 

Hundreds of musicians and their families remain in Afghanistan but are unable to work and sustain themselves. Your funds can help with the necessities of life (food, housing, fuel). If you wish to support a particular person or family, please specify when making your donation. 

RESETTLEMENT

Resettlement happens on a case-by-case basis. If you have a specific person or family you wish to assist, please note that in your donation. More information will be coming soon about how to help musicians of Afghanistan not only survive but flourish and continue to practice their art through continued educational or work opportunities. If you are aware of opportunities or would like to sponsor someone for a better future, please contact us at icfam@protonmail.com

ICFAM/CPAM IS MANAGED BY A GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS.

100% OF DONATED FUNDS ARE USED TO ASSIST AFGHANISTAN'S MUSICIANS.
