As a response to the developing situation in Afghanistan, which has so far put an estimated 18 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, Resident Advisor has partnered with The Right To Dance – the charity War Child’s newest music-led fundraising movement - to host an Afghanistan Emergency Fundraiser.
Taking place at The Cause in North London on Thursday 21st October, the event will feature a mixture of DJs from across the musical spectrum, alongside a curated group of emerging talent from London and beyond. Together they will be raising money to aid the work of War Child, Choose Love and the National Institute of Music In Kabul providing assistance to those who need it most in Afghanistan and around the world.
ABOUT WAR CHILD UK & THE RIGHT TO DANCE
War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For more than two decades they’ve been driven by a single goal – for no child’s life to be torn apart by war. They aim 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. They understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of the solution and campaign for changes to policies and practices to support children in conflict, working with children and young people themselves to demand their rights. Together with their partners they deliver vital, life-saving work in 15 countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and Latin America. In 2019 alone, they reached over 100,000 children.
The Right To Dance is a music-led fundraising movement created by War Child UK, which invites people to donate differently and stand up for children impacted by war through the shared values of the underground music community.
