For Ukraine! A charity marathon in Tbilisi Concert Hall
Starting from the 24th of February 2022, the Russia-Ukrainian war has joined all the civilised world in one common fight — the fight for freedom, democracy, independence and peace. The people of Georgia, as a people who passed through the war with Russia in 2008 and lost hundreds of their people, share deeply the pain of all Ukrainians and support us in every possible way. As together we are stronger than ever.
The curators of the «For Ukraine» charity marathon share: «Today the world is united for Ukraine. The fight against Russia’s aggression and atrocities carried out in Ukraine is a fight for our future, the future of the free world. We Georgians are very conscious of what is a strike. 20% of Georgia is occupied by Russia. We stand with Ukraine and invite you to unite our efforts on April 11th at the «For Ukraine» charity marathon that will be held in Tbilisi Concert Hall.»
The artists, who will take part in the concert are: Lviv International Symphony Orchestra (only women represent the orchestra, men are fighting the war), Jamala (Ukrainian Crimean Tatar performer who won Eurovision Song Contest for Ukraine in 2016), Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra directed by Nikoloz Rachveli, Georgian National Ballet Sukhishvili, Nino Katamadze, jazz pianists Beka Gochiashvili and Papuna Sharikadze, violinist Giorgi Zagareli, singer Sofo Batilashvili, violoncellist Lizi Ramishvili, Tbilisi Conservatoire Student’s Choir. Special guest of the evening — Masha Efrosinina (Ukrainian television host and media personality, the United Nations Population Fund Goodwill Ambassador since 2018). The evening will be hosted by Nino Kasradze and Valeriya Guzema (Founder and creative director of the Guzema Fine Jewelry brand, “Thoughts Leader” in Elle Style Awards 2020, founder of charity foundation “Guzema Foundation”, which currently supports the Chernihiv Regional Children’s Hospital and helps children with disabilities).
And rephrasing Ayn Rand, the world that Ukrainian people want for their children can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is theirs.
The fundraising during the charity will be accumulated at HELPUKRAINE.CENTER – a volunteer storage centre, where humanitarian and medical aid can be sent from all over the world.
