18 Musical Artists/Groups Organize Solidarity Concert in Miraflores for Peru’s Earthquake Victims

(LIP-ir) — "It’s been cold in Lima these days, hasn’t it? When you’re out in the street you can really feel it, but when you get home you feel much warmer, especially if have a hot cup of coffee or tea, a warm soup or even a comfortable blanket to snuggle under."

"Our brothers and sisters in the south do not have any of these basic needs. There are many places where aid is not enough or is not arriving the way it should. One of those places is Chincha, specifically El Carmen, El Guayabo and San Requis."

These were the sincere and wholehearted statements of the spokesperson representing 18 musical groups and bands.

In a press release issued today, the bands announced that "The Solidarity Concert" has been organized to raise funds for all of the people that were victims of the earthquake and have not received help yet.

The 18 artists and groups have organized this kind act in a loving and generous way, only expecting that audiences help in their mission to aid those that have not been assisted yet, they will not be paid or remunerated in any way. The only compensation sought is a person willing to help those that have been left devastated by the earthquake.

It was announced that the concert is to be held at Parque Reducto de Miraflores (on the corner of Benavides Ave. and the Via Expresa) on Sunday September 2 from 3 p.m. – 10 p.m. There will be no admission fees. Nonetheless, it is hoped that everyone that attends will bring donations for those that are in desperate need of basic provisions in the South.

"There are a lot of people living on the street, children and elderly people are among them. All those that can bring food, clothes, blankets, diapers, plastic bags, sleeping bags and tents (tents are very necessary at this time), will be welcome."
