Boat for Sara
Singer-Songwriter Jim Kroft just recently returned from Idomeni, the epicentre of the refugee crisis, that he visited as part of his travel and music project JOURNEYS with the photographer Bastian Fischer from Berlin. The stay there left a mark. Night after night, he helped the volunteers on the shores to pull drowning people from the waves – until he held an unconscious girl in his own arms. The girl, Sara, didn’t die. She woke up and found her way back to her parents. That was when the resolution to do more grew in Jim. In his empathetic and humane manner, he documented his experiences, recorded his new album in just 48 hours and wrapped all these stories up in wonderful music. You can listen to them on April 8th, when he will be performing them at his concert at Bi Nuu in Berlin. 100% of the proceeds from album sales and concert go to the charitable foundation PROEM-AID that rescues sinking refugees from the sea on the shores of Lesbos. In addition, Jim, who we know from joint concerts, started the crowd-funding campaign »Boat for Sara« and is raising money for a new and better boat for the helpers on site. Sara, that rings a bell, right? Right! The campaign will continue for another two weeks. Give and help, if you please!
