CHARITY Proceeds from MA2024 support charitable work and Music Aid Foundation causes and projects. In this 25th Anniversary Year the organization returns to the same poor village children and families in SE Asia that were supported with the funds raised at the Music Aid launch event 25 years ago. We return to the same villages and again provide school shoes, uniforms, books and other aid to hundreds of families and will post photos and stories from the villagers. During the past 25 years the Music Aid Foundation has provided aid and support to charities and good causes and has worked with some of the world's biggest organizations including The United Nations UNV program and UNICEF The United Nations International Childrens Emergency Fund.
