An international effort to protect all of Afghanistan's musicians in a time of crisis, along with their extraordinarily rich musical traditions, from the traditional rabab to the latest pop music.
HELP PROTECT AFGHANISTAN'S MUSICANS AND MUSICAL HERITAGE
YOUR DONATION WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
FEED THE SOUL
In addition to fear of punishment, musicians in Afghanistan are dealing with reduced access to funds, food, and heat due the total eradication of their employment. As winter approaches, many are facing the real threat of seeing themselves or their loved ones succumb to illness, starvation, and death.
The Campaign to Protect Afghanistan's Musicians (CPAM) is teaming up 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 and heat for a family of 5 for a month during the coldest time of year. Help us keep the musicians of Afghanistan and their ancient musical cultures alive by giving the gift of life this winter.
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!
