The initiative aims to raise funds for UNHCR, The UN Refugee Agency by inviting viewers to donate via a link during the live stream. The funds will go directly to support the charity’s humanitarian efforts in helping to rebuild Beirut.
DXB4BEY aims to generate 10 million streams and raise one million dirhams for the initiative in one day. And the organisers have no doubt that the residents of UAE and people around the world will come together to support the cause.
The host of DXB4BEY, Wonho Chung said that the catastrophe that took place in Lebanon is beyond belief and that art and music can provide a beacon of light and hope.
“It is my hope that our little gesture can help the people of Beirut in any way we can, even the smallest of actions can go a long way, we are stronger when we stand united, against anyone and anything,” said Wonho.
Popular local musician and organiser Niki Mukhi said the beauty and resilience of the Lebanese people has been noticed. “Inspired by their strength, we are bringing the UAE’s music community together to use our voices to sustain the momentum of relief efforts happening as we speak,” said Niki.
The event is being held in conjunction with Bull Funk Studios, Niki Mukhi and The Arbor School.
