Musicians Against Racism & Apathy
MARA.Global is an events initiative to encourage collaborations between musicians and performers from diverse cultural and artistic backgrounds. Our aim is to raise awareness
about social, political and environmental issues that concern us. We work in association with charities and socially aware enterprises.

MARA.Global invites musicians, poets, artists, actors, film-makers and fashion designers, to meet, form new allegiances and create work together. We want to create partnerships between artists, companies and the wider community and to encourage companies to invest in long-term charitable initiatives that have far reaching impacts for disenfranchised young people, refugee 
communities and other groups of people in need. Mara.Global - http://mara.global

Help Refugees Mission Statement
Help Refugees is not simply another aid organisation. We work where governmental and other non-governmental bodies can (or will) not, filling the gaps and providing emergency aid and vital services to those affected by the global refugee crisis. 

We act fast to get aid and services directly and immediately to the people who need it most by identifying the most effective grassroots groups, local people, individual volunteers and refugees themselves active in the crisis and providing them with funding and support, enabling them to focus their time and energy on the vital work they do every day. Help Refugees are also operational where needed across Europe providing our experienced teams to maintain quality services and uphold dignity for refugees.

We strive to ensure that everyone has access to the basic necessities such as food, water, warm clothing and shelter. We also prioritise the provision of sufficient adapted services
for the most vulnerable people affected by the crisis, funding safe spaces for women, sexual health clinics, medical units and equipment nurseries, schools and youth centres. As the crisis develops we are also focusing our efforts on empowering refugees to be masters of their own
destinies and restore their independence, funding education programmes, sustainable housing projects, and job training programmes. We keep our own core costs at an absolute minimum (currently less that 4%).

We report the reality of crisis first-hand and present it honestly, a unique trusted voice in the public arena. Our advocacy concentrates on both the big picture and the cases of the individual refugees who urgently need help, with a particular focus on the rights of unaccompanied minors.
We only began in summer 2015, a group of ordinary friends determined to make a small difference. Having grown exponentially and developed in the face of today’s global refugee crisis (constantly adapting to the ever-changing needs of those affected by it) we believe that together with our ever growing giant network of grassroots groups, implementing partners, volunteers, fundraisers, and supporters we have enabled a new movement in humanitarian response - acting
quickly and flexibly, enabling ordinary people to help other ordinary people in need in the most direct of ways.

We hope you will join us. http://www.helprefugees.org.uk

Help Refugees is a registered charity under the auspices of Prism Gift Fund (charity number: 1099682).

We are currently living in a refugee crisis unseen since the Second World War with approximately 65.3 million people now refugees, seeking asylum, or internally displaced… WHERE IS HOME?

Founder of MARA.global, Tina Grace, established the Mara.global initiative last summer in response to the rise of racist attitudes in the press and society in general. The intention being to present cultural events combining excellent live music / charitable initiatives /guest speakers / film makers / fashionistas together to raise funds and awareness for important causes; following the motto of The Jo Cox foundation “there is more that unites us than divides us”.

Scrape the surface of any refugee crisis, regardless of scale or territory, and you quickly get down to a thick layer that represents the enormous need for humanitarian aid and support. There isn’t a person on the planet that has not seen or heard about the refugee crisis.

Tina Grace, Founder of MARA, “We have received positive encouragement from literally hundreds of people involved in supporting MARA many of whom have already committed resource to the cause. There is so much still do, so much change that needs to happen, and the timing of the Where is Home Fundraiser could not be more opportune. This is an exciting opportunity for everyone to get together in a very unique environment and listen to the power of Music Against Racism and Apathy (MARA). We are delighted to be a part of The Great Get Together.”
