Air Supply concert fund to be donated for Chin and Kachin children
14 August 2013: An Australian soft rock band, Air Supply, is to play their first gig in Rangoon tomorrow, with aims to raise fund for children education in Chin and Kachin States.
The profits will be used to fund education projects for children in the two ethnic States of Kachin and Chin over the next academic year, according to media reports.
“It is great to hear that the fund will be spent to improve children education. However, it is vital that it benefit the children, not those who want to take credits out of the projects,” a Chin teacher from Hakha told Chinland Guardian.
It is claimed that Burma’s famous rock band, Iron Cross, is set to join Air Supply in their entertainment.
The ticket prices of the charity gig, which will take place at the Myanmar Convention Centre on Min Dhamma Road, range from 25,000 to 55,000 Kyats.
It is a joint event by Bagan Entertainment and Htoo Foundation, the two Burmese companies that had organized a Michael Learns to Rock concert earlier this year.#
