As a response to the desperate refugee crisis during 2015 and 2016, I invited some of my amazing musical friends to contribute songs for an album to draw attention to and raise money to help the situation. The response I got was truly humbling as one by one these gorgeous songs were sent in. Many had written original songs especially for the project, others contributed older material that seemed to fit the theme.
We linked up with a charitable organisation FROM SYRIA WITH LOVE ( www.fromsyriawithlove.com
) which is based locally in Devon, and works directly with people living in the refugee camps in Lebanon, with ZERO overheads and in direct response to the immediate needs of people there. They respond to requests for practical things like new shoes and writing equipment etc for the children there. They have set up chicken sheds to provide work and income, and where possible buy what is needed from local suppliers so helping the local economy too.
They are sponsoring 4 schools to provide education for children.
supported more than 100 families with aid baskets, drilled a well that supplies 600 people with water, and are doing much more for emergencies and relief for families inside Syria and Lebanon.
With their contacts on the ground in the camps they can operate in places where help is needed the most because of the lack of local charities and absence of UN organisations.
Please check out the great work they are doing and donate generously. Every penny that is donated goes directly to those who need it most. Their website shows many examples of how funds have been used.
All profits from this album will go directly to From Syria With Love and so directly to help people living in fear, and sometimes terrible conditions in exile from their homes.
