Yury, why are your charity projects important to you?
As a public figure, I have the possibility to reach a bigger community to raise awareness for social causes, themes and projects. I am aware of my fortunate position to be able to live my dream as musician and play violin, but also know that many people are far less blessed and live in and with difficult life situations. My humanitarian work and engagement are my way to pay it forward.

“Dreamland with Yury Revich for UNICEF” staged for the first time in Vienna in 2017, since then it successfully raised funds for the Water Project of UNICEF Austria. It helped to build proper water system in number of schools in Syria.
