Schirmchendrink, DHA & Atish Partner With Volunteers For Humanity For 2017 Cup of Hope Charity Campaign

Published On 05/09/2017 | News

We are very pleased to announce a new music and humanitarian initiative series “Cup of Hope” alongside Switzerland’s Schirmchendrink and Volunteers for Humanity (VfH), as well as San Francisco’s Atish!

The partnership, which comes in the form of an exclusive mix to be released 4 December, 2017, with periodic editions to follow in the coming months, will be the second from online music platform Schirmchendrink and humanitarian charity organization VfH, intending to collect money to finance medical, aid and school supplies to refugee camps around Aleppo, Homs and the Latakia area in Syria. Last year, YokoO was the cause’s musical ambassador and this year, we’re happy to have a DHA favorite over the last few year, Atish, on board for this very important cause.

Of course, the initiative is for the people affected by the war torn situation in Syria, which has raged on for years. With VfH on board, tons of supplies have already been collected and transported to the region, however there can ever truly be enough. It is critical to get materials across borders and to their proper destination safely, securely, and completely. Having developed a robust network of trusted partners and like minded organizations, VfH is one of the preeminent organizations working towards providing the necessary supplies. Check out the group in action in Latakia below:

The “Cup of Hope” is a simple yet effective process for any fan of humanitarianism and dance music. Simply go to volunteersforhumanity/cupofhope and donate CHF 20 ($21). If you do this before 30 November 2017, you will become a Cup of Hope “partner”, which features your name digitally engraved on the cup itself. All donations receive the mix download, as well as tracklist provided especially from the artist, himself. All of us here at DHA feel the situation in Syria is one of the 21st Century’s continued tragedies, given the continued targeting of hospitals and schools.
