“We’re hearing on a daily basis just how bad it is. Just no access to clean water, or without electricity for up to 10-12 hours of the day. Conditions are just miserable and a lot of the the financial support that’s been going over to Syria hasn’t gone directly into the most desperate areas within Syria. More of the financial support has been in refugee camps outside of the country - so there’s a need directly in the country […] we hear so much on the news about what’s going wrong in the middle east but we don’t hear a lot about what we do to give back or help directly. So I figured this was a good opportunity for me to step up and take direct action. “
-Bassel Al-Madani, organizer and member of the Supernaturals
Bassel and the Supernaturals are playing as part of a Save Syria show Thursday night along with our good friends Sidewalk Chalk. They’re donating a portion of the door and taking more money for charities that are working directly with people in need on the ground in Syria. Bassel stopped by the studio this morning to talk about his role in raising money for the Syrian community. If you are interested in purchasing tickets to this event, visit their website!
