Concert for Peace held at Caava Courtyard

There is no greater power in the world than the power of love, and we stand by love. With this sentiment in their hearts, the local and international community of Goa came together to stand by peace and help those troubled by the war in Ukraine.

On Sunday, March 13, 2022, ‘Concert For Peace’ was organized by Ash Chandler, Sinead McManus & friends at Caava Courtyard, Anjuna with a single aim in mind – to raise funds for a cause.

The Concert For Peace was conceptualised and executed to raise funds for those suffering in Ukraine and to make the world a better place. Millions of children are being displaced from their homes and for some, the struggle for their life begins as soon as they are born. There are so many pre-mature deliveries happening in hospitals and both mothers and children face tough conditions. They can neither be evacuated nor are the hospitals properly equipped to take care of them. Premature babies who need extra care are swinging between life and death. The organisers said ‘In our small way, we wish to reach out to these hospitals and help them get incubators and other required equipment to try and ensure healthier growth for these children who are fighting each day for their survival. We are working on getting the funds raised to the 16th Children’s Hospital In Kharkiv”.  

It was an evening of entertainment hosted by Ash Chandler who also sang with his duo act (Los Bardos with Salim Sadik) featuring renowned artists including Carlton Braganza  (Jukebox Jammies), Smruti Jalpur, Anika Noronha, Charizma Entertainment, Fire Performers, Mariia Skutova & Wanted performers. The show was a resounding success as the crowd enjoyed three hours of nonstop entertainment with love & applause at the beautiful venue. 

Familiar faces including French actress Marianne Borgo, Dr Nadia Pinto Sousa & Paul Dass OBE supported the cause. Caava Courtyard served as an excellent venue to host this endearing evening. Local businesses donated gifts & prizes that were redeemed through raffles and auctions. All proceedings will go immediately to help save lives. 

Charizma Entertainment’s Zenia, who is from Ukraine, said, “I’m really grateful to all of you for coming here to support the cause. You can’t imagine what it means to us. And I wish you all a peaceful sky above. Now I understand,  that’s the most important wish in life.”

An amount of Rs 1,80,000/- was collected and donated towards the cause with a hope in everyone’s heart to make the world a more peaceful place.
