1974 AD for Every One
7 April 2011-Thursday
-The Cheeguz

In Nepal over 50,000 newborn die due to preventable causes such as pneumonia and diarrhea, and the other 80% of risky delivery taking place at home without the presence of a skilled birth attendant; which need not be the case, provided there’s awareness and knowledge about such preventable fatalities.

Exactly the agenda of the upcoming concert, Save the Children’s global campaign to save newborns, Every One is organizing an evening of music with 1974 AD, Save the Children’s Artist Ambassador.

“If we can use our music and status to bring about changes, it’s our privilege,” shared Adrian Pradhan, vocalist of 1974 AD. “Every One Campaign’s philosophy matches with our ideologies and it’s something close to our heart.”

In the past, 1974 AD has been supporting Child Rights Issues through various fundraising concerts such as Come Together in 2009 and 2010, and Adopt-A-School initiative.

Pradhan added, “The stats are just mind-boggling. I believe no one should suffer because of the negligence of another, or due to lack of knowledge.”

The EVERY ONE Campaign in Nepal aims to support the government to stay on track to meet the Millennium Development Goals -4 by reducing child mortality by two third before 2015, shared Sanjana Shrestha, information coordinator of Save the Children.

“We appreciate 1974 AD’s commitment. We look forward to your attendance, for it will make an important impact,” said she.

The concert, one of many planned in future, is scheduled for April 9, Saturday from 6 pm onwards at Moksh, Jhamsikhel.

Tickets are priced at Rs 500 per head.
