Master Chorus Eastside to raise funds for Japan


As part of its previously announced Bach St. John Passion concert, to be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Kirkland Performance Center, Master Chorus Eastside is announcing a fund drive for the victims of the disaster in Japan. All of the funds will support the relief efforts of World Vision, a local faith-based charity.

Already, blankets, water and other basic supplies have reached 6,000 survivors.

"These needs I'm seeing in my own country are as bad as anything I've seen globally," said World Vision relief manager Kenjiro Ban. “Priority needs include supplies for babies and small children, and next steps will include setting up Child Friendly Spaces, which are safe places for children where they can be protected, have structure and playtime, and begin to deal with the stress of the traumatic events they’ve just experienced.”
