An English speaking group from Amnesty International Munich is back again this autumn.
This year we want to focus our international solidarity on the children in Ukraine and Myanmar who are caught up in the current military conflicts.
We want to raise funds for an orphanage in Chernivtsi in Ukraine which is near the border with Romania. They care for physically and mentally disabled orphans who are forced to move from the Eastern part of Ukraine. Chernivtsi is a relatively safe city and it has catered to many internally displaced refugees of all types, yet local resources are simply not sufficient. They don’t even have enough warm clothes for their 60 kids. There are a few more relocated orphanages like that in the region.
We also want to care for small NGOs, and local activists in Myanmar who have helped internal refugees as well. Since another coup d’état in Myanmar began on 1 February 2021, military junta deposed democratically elected members of the country’s ruling party, and have killed and imprisoned civilians who bravely have resisted against them.
The two local bands who will play are: Los Pelikanos (Punk Rock) and Panama Offshore Trust (Rock Music). They have long been active in the Munich music scene. www.los-pelikanos.de
The evening will also feature a silent auction to raise funds, for example movie tickets, coupons for restaurants and cafes, and possibly donated products of celebrities.
