Many Mazatlan musicians and their families are being severely affected by COVID-19, they lost their jobs overnight and their ability to provide for their families has been diminished. Confinement measures are to be relaxed in Mazatlán and in much of the world, however our musicians will not be able to return to their normal work until weeks after the emergency passes.
You who love Mazatlán and its music can help them by making a donation to the Mazatlán Emergency Fund for Musicians. Visit www.ilovemazatlanmusic.org to make your donation before May 30.
After the first application, the Fund has benefited more than 45 people, including musicians and their families, through emergency aid for more than $ 42,000.00 pesos. Musicians like Hernán, who in addition to studying music, supports his family playing on trucks, since his father is diabetic and has not been able to work for years. Musicians like Ramón, who cannot read or write and risk his life every day to bring something to eat for his family.
To this day, the Fund (www.guitarramazatlan.org/fondo/) has raised more than $ 57,000.00 pesos and you may have reached your goal of $ 75,000.00 pesos to help 40 other musicians and their families. Ways to donate:
