‘Daughters of Ukraine’ – New single release supporting the Ukraine Crisis
Word Of Thanks
“The Irish Red Cross is grateful for the tremendous support of Maisey and the Deep. We continue to provide urgent assistance to those caught up in the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine – with the country itself as well as in the surrounding region and here in Ireland. This support simply could not be done without the overwhelming generosity and empathy of so many people.”
Maisey And The Deep
An Irish band, on the cusp of releasing their debut album, paused their work, to write a song for Ukraine. The band hopes to raise vital funds for displaced children as a result of the ongoing devastating war. Titled ‘Daughters of Ukraine’, the song is a tribute to the loss of the lives of children in Ukraine and focuses on one of the first children to lose their life. Seven-year-old- girl, Alisa Hlans, who was killed during a 'cluster bomb' strike on a school in Ukraine as her grandfather desperately tried to shield her from the blast.
Lead singer and mother of two, Maisey, was inspired to write this song as a tribute to all mothers and families whose children were the tragic victims of this cruel war.
‘I don’t think there is any woman, mother or father who isn’t heartbroken for the Ukrainian families who are now in despair. One child lost, is one precious life too many.
Every child deserves the chance to live in peace.’
A special thanks to all who contributed voluntarily to this initiative.
