The solidarity festival collects 885 euros for refugees

About 300 people filled the Civic Center of Granada this Saturday evening on the occasion of the festival of solidarity for the benefit of those refugees, organized by The Solidarity Group with the collaboration of the Council of the municipality.

The event had a duration of two hours and was attended by several performances of artists from the area, a broad repertoire that allowed you to enjoy from the songs of boys and girls from the school of Granada Jacint Verdaguer to flamenco shows and tango, to the explanation of the first-person experience of the day to day life of the refugee camps.

In total, they raise 885 euros that will go toward the Proactive NGO Open Arms, whose main objective is to rescue the sea refugees who come to Europe fleeing wars, persecution or poverty.
