Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page for The Children of Yemen - with "Yemen Blues Plays Hallel" World Premiere Tour, and joining us to support the lifesaving mission of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)!

Yemen Blues is an international music group founded by Ravid Kahalani & Omer Avital in 2010, presents a new generation of global culture music by reconnecting the soulful points of our "different" culture of sounds in our lives, featuring some of the world's top musicians and artists. 

In this special music tour Yemen Blues Plays Hallel we will be visiting 7 cities to play 8 shows in the US & Canada starting Oct 29, 2019 in NYC, to spread the power of love through music, and to take this amazing opportunity to support the Children of Yemen in these crisis times and let them learn love for our better future.

Yemen Blues Plays Hallel will be featuring the extraordinary bassist/producer Shanir Blumenkranz (John Zorn, Yo Yo Ma), acclaimed drummer Nikki Glaspie (Beyonce, Jay-Z, George Michael) and (on Oct 29, 2019 in New York) the Harlem First Corinthian Baptist Church Choir under the direction of Charles Anthony.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an independent international medical humanitarian organization that provides aid to people in more than 70 countries whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters.

Together we are raising funds and awareness to support its response to emergencies around the world. Your donation will be put to work immediately to deliver urgent medical care including treatment for malnutrition, emergency surgery, and lifesaving vaccinations for the Children of Yemen.
