For Vato – Help save young Georgian violinist’s life
16 June, 2018
A 26-year-old gifted violinist Vato Magradze from Georgia urgently needs support to fight against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).

Recently, he has been diagnosed with a terrible disease. As there are no modern treatment methods in Georgia Vato has to undergo chemotherapy and Bone Marrow Transplanting in Germany as soon as possible. He has no insurance for it. The first stage of treatment requires 268,000 EU, yet the musician cannot cover the treatment by his own.

Please help Vato defeat this disease
and play Violin again.

Vato has been performing from the age of 8. He has been selected as a violinist of Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra since 2012. During 2012-2016 he was a member of The I, CULTURE Orchestra (ICO) initiated by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw as part of the cultural programme of Poland's EU Council Presidency. The violinist has been actively involved in almost every festival, charity campaign or national event held in Georgia. Currently charity programs, Facebook campaigns, Georgian and foreign artists, public figures along with ordinary citizens are trying to accumulate the required sum for his treatment. The campaign named For Vato aims to save the musician’s life and get the artist back to his work. Anyone is more than welcome to join this charity campaign and save the young talent by one’s good deed.
