Ukrainian Youth Mix Parties and Clean Up
Ukrainian youth are combining parties with an effort to rebuild, setting up “clean up raves.” We should pray for them!
From BBC. As the aroma of burnt debris looms in the air and the feeling of security is not yet restored, you wouldn’t expect to be met with a vibrant burst of techno music from a bombed-out shell of a community building.
But that’s exactly what is happening in Yahidne in northern Ukraine where a group of young Ukrainians are picking up their shovels to clean up the ruins left by war….
They invite DJs to play techno music as volunteers and locals work together to restore areas that were recently liberated from Russian occupation….
For Tania Burianova, one of the seven founders of Rebuild Together, seeing the big problems meant “wanting to help these people” who are in need.
Techno raves were a big part of the 26-year-old’s life, but without the chance to visit festivals and parties they’ve instead decided to bring the techno into their clean up.
“We invited DJs, and it was cleaning with music and this gave a lot of energy, motivation and inspiration for our volunteers,” she says….
“Our next plans are to build more than twelve houses in a village that we’ve already cleaned and maybe we can do more before the winter comes,” she says.
Are you encouraged by these youth? If so, share this article with your friends and family to encourage them!
