In too many parts of the world children struggle to escape extreme violence. The threat of war, gangs and famine are unbearable.
The only alternative is for these children to flee their homes and endure the hard path of a refugee. Some flee with their families, many face the odyssey alone, either to seek a better life or in many cases, simply a chance to survive. In the current political climate, borders are closing to those who need asylum most. According to the UNHCR there are more refugees now than ever before.
I am hoping to use my song “No Safe Place” to raise awareness of this epidemic and help children, and by extension all refugees, who bravely leave a brutal life at home in the hopes of finding a safer one in a foreign land. All proceeds from the sale of the song “No Safe Place” will be donated to USA for UNHCR and other groups that provide direct aid to refugees. The goal is to raise $1 million.
