Underground music platforms Keep Hush and Worldwide FM are teaming up to throw a fundraiser in support of War Child, a specialist charity currently on the ground in Ukraine responding and supporting children and their families in the best way possible.
The Ukraine fundraiser event is taking place at Corsica Studios on Wednesday, March 9, 8-12pm GMT and is bringing some of the best selectors in the business to South London, including Suma Sound DJ and Lemon Lounge co-founder Borge, world-renowned dub and reggae crew Channel One, BBC Radio 6 DJ and label-head Gilles Peterson, alt-jazz and neo-soul talent Muva of Earth, as well as Papaoul and Rabiah.
War Child is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. 10.7 million children in Ukraine are currently living in crisis, being forced from their homes and leaving loved ones behind, without food, water and the means to stay warm.
The charity aims to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them through their recovery – keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, and equipping them with skills for the future.
