Music Action International is a non-profit organization, based in Manchester, UK. We chose Music Action International as the recipient of our event proceeds because of their unwavering dedication to help refugees of war-torn countries begin to rebuild their lives. According to the UNHCR, there were over 110,000 refugees reported in the UK in mid-2015 and more than 39,000 cases of refugees pending asylum. Many of these refugees were victims of brutal torture and captivity, barely escaping the life-threatening situations they were enveloped in. Music Action International uses the power of music to reactivate hope to its participants, many of whom are refugee children. To learn more about Music Action International, click here.

Members of Stone Flowers have fled war and conflict from several countries, including: Egypt, Sri Lanka, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Afghanistan and Iran, to name a few.
