What is happening?
Ukraine is facing a humanitarian crisis. The international armed conflict has left overwhelming suffering, death and destruction. The Russian military has already destroyed a massive portion of Ukraine’s energy system with power cuts lasting several hours and becoming increasingly frequent in most areas of the country.
Particularly in winter times, the situation affects the lives of the teachers, students and administrative staff. It has paralysed not only the work of many institutions’ departments but has also limited the opportunities to study, practise musical instruments, prepare for exams, rehearse, and perform concerts.
AEC is committed to helping Ukrainian Music Higher Education Institutions become as autonomous as possible from the external energy and heating systems and this is why we have decided to start a donation campaign to help our Ukrainian members survive this winter.
AEC is in direct and steady contact with its members to get updates on their living and working conditions. As the campaign progresses, AEC will feature these updates on its website to spread awareness about the situation.
