Support Ukraine + UNHCR - the UN Refugee Agency
Support. Give. Pass it forward.
I've joined with Together In Hope Project to support its mission to create music that brings humanity together. Its latest project, "The Stranger", created by Norwegian composer Kim André Arnesen, premieres in Trondheim, Norway at the world renown Olavsfest Music Festival on July 28, 2022. It will also be performed at the Ordway in St. Paul, MN October 15-16, 2022.
Part of the lyrics of this piece comes from a document commissioned by the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, inviting the world's religions & philosophies to write about their practice of "welcoming the stranger", a common theme to all . The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is the world’s leading organization aiding and protecting people forced to flee their homes due to violence, conflict and persecution. UNHCR provides shelter, food, water, medical care and other lifesaving assistance to refugees around the world. They need our help.
Together In Hope Project is partnering with UNHCR with a fundraiser to increase their budget to care for ever increasing refugee populations, most recently Ukrainians. For more information on how you can help support the USA for UNHCR in its mission to help refugees click here.
