*All proceeds of the concert go to : “Supporting and helping the refugees from the Ukraine by the Japanese church” For the sake of supporting the refugees of the Ukraine, Ref. Nobuyuki Uchimura (The paster of Milano church /Japanese Church of the Southern Netherlands) is cooperating with the Ref. Valentin Nehro of the Baptist church in Borehove, Ukraine. Mr. Uchimura´s one of activities is to transport supplies, foods and donation money directly to the Ukraine. He drives a distance of 2,600 km round trip from Milano to Ukraine.

Mr. Uchimura says that supporting refugees is normally done by professional organizations, but at the same time, the activity of local churches is essential and should not be forgotten. My mission is helping such local churches in the Ukraine. In my view, the big problem is that children are suffering greatly. They are one of the biggest victims. I would like to help for the week such as children, family and elderly people who need great help.

We always feel it is very important to convey an important message to the people who listen to our music and also enjoy our theatrical performances. With "The Terra" we want to share the message that we are all together on the same spaceship, Mother Earth, the beautiful blue planet. Present-day mankind is harming the earth too much and she has gotten into a critical situation for all species. And now we are facing a difficult time. We have a deep responsibility to take care of the earth for the sake of future generations. Japone Artists dedicate "The Terra" to our beautiful planet with our prayer for love and peace for mother earth, nature, and people. More information can be found on our music page.
