About this event

Please join us this Monday the 26th as we come together as a community to raise funds for the devastating climate disaster in Pakistan. This event will bring together members of the diaspora including artists, activists, and photographers, to use the power of their network and reach to raise money for victims of the devastating floods.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Friends of Indus Hospital, which is doing the important work on the ground towards disaster relief.

Performances by The Kominas and DJ ZEEMUFFIN

Our friends and vendors will be on site selling products to support this fundraiser:

This fundraiser is being supported by our partners at 1947 Beer, LOKI and Lunar.

Why is this important :

Pakistan has been hit with its most devastating floods in history. With 33 million people displaced, and over 1500 people dead including children, the situation is dire. Entire villages, schools, and roads have been swept away, and with them lives, livelihoods, generations of memories, and plans for the future.

A third of the country is under flood water - an area the size of the UK. Families need food, clean drinking water, shelter, and medical assistance. They need solidarity from all parts of the globe- not those of us in the diaspora but all of us who know this to be a wake-up call to the world on the threats of climate change.

As part of the diaspora abroad, we want to rally the community to come together to help raise funds for the massive effort that will be required to rebuild the country. The flooding has crippled a country that was already reeling from an economic crisis and double digit-inflation that has sent the price of basic goods soaring. Now the flooding threatens to set Pakistan back years or even decades. People are in dire need of food, shelter, clothing and everything in between.

All the proceeds from ticket sales and vendors' sales will go to Friends of Indus Hospital.
