Der in Berlin lebende Soundartist und Multiinstrumentalist Dirar Kalash erlitt vor einigen Tagen schwere Verletzungen bei einem Unfall und ist derzeit in stationärer Behandlung. Aufgrund der kostspieligen Behandlung und der abzusehenden längeren Arbeitsunfähigkeit haben Freunde des Musikers vom Radiosender Al Hara einen Spendenaufruf auf GoFundMe gestartet.
“Dirar Kalash - pioneering sound artist, composer and leading figure of the Palestinian underground experimental scene – was hospitalized last Saturday, 26th of November, after an accident in Berlin. He spent five nights at the hospital with severe injuries, including multiple fractures. He will have to go through surgery for broken cheekbones. As a result, he won’t be able to work for many months, aside from the heavy medical bills, which are up to approx 5000 EUR already. This campaign aims to bring together collective support to cover his medical and living expenses until he is able to get back on his feet.
