In February 2023, a strong earthquake occurred in south-eastern Turkey and north-western Syria. In the affected areas, reconstruction has been slow due to the long-running conflict, and many people are still in need of humanitarian assistance.
With the month of December, which is the month of donation, we would like to hold a charity concert to ask for more of your interest and support for the people of Türkiye and Syria.
We are pleased to invite Gen Tomuro, a pianist who performs internationally. We hope you will enjoy the beautiful piano sound that he plays with hopes for an early return of peace and for the days when everyone is connected to medical care and can live a healthy life in mind and body. Your participation will help support the people of Türkiye and Syria.
