For the second time –first was in 2015–, Donostia-San Sebastián Chillida Leku Museum was the venue last Saturday for a charity concert of musician, composer and director Juan Carlos Irizar for the We Are Like You project. This time he was accompanied by Iñaki Revuelta and Marian Larrea, whoplayed and sang different pieces and performed as a trio with Irizar to finish the musical evening.
On the fifth of this month, workers from the different Aita Menni centers, volunteers, company representatives and partner institutions and, in general, friends of the Hospital enjoyed a party in honor of charity and harmony, organized by the Management in an emblematic and special environment: the Chillida-Leku museum, which has been closed to the public for the last 5 years.
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Something stirred inside Juan Carlos Irizar upon learning, through Mikel Tellaeche, CEO of the Aita Menni Hospital and former director of Saint Joseph's Catholic Hospital in Monrovia, about the health conditions suffered in Liberia. The Oñati musician continued reading up on the topic and, especially following the outbreak of Ebola, was so shaken by the dire situation of the sick that he decided to use his musical resources for fundraising.
It was in this manner that the Charity Concerts in favor of the project "We Are Like You", scheduled from May until November, began. The aim is to contribute to the support of the Benedict Menni Health Center of the Sisters Hospitallers in Monrovia.
