This year alone, over 2600 refugees majority African have drowned in the Mediterranean trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. Many of our parents also migrated to the UK for a better life and it is incomprehensible that thousands have and continue to die, just to have access to the same opportunities we do. So far, African and Arab governments have done little to nothing, while European countries are likely to close their boarders again very soon.
So rather than just talking about it, two friends Michael and Malcom aim to use our love of dance and music to save lives by organizing an S.O.S Fundraiser Party where all profits will go to the search and rescue group Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS). So far, MOAS have saved 11,000 lives (even before the refugee crisis was headline news).
To makes sure that you not only sweat, but also laugh we have got top comedian Lateef Lovejoy (Edinburgh Fringe Festival, BBC (and Green Flag TV advert) hosting the Artist’s Hour with slam poets, and comedians.
