Art Auction raises $22,000 for children in need
This March marks the fourth anniversary of the Syrian crisis which has left 12.2 million people in desperate need of humanitarian assistance - including 5.6 million children, more than the entire population of New Zealand.
Gow Langsford Gallery and gallery artists Dick Frizzell, Max Gimblett, John Pule, Sara Hughes and Reuben Paterson are proud to have been part of World Vision's campaign The Forgotten Millions. On the 18th of March, seven new works, made especially for the event, were auctioned off at a fundraising event that raised a total of $22,000.
To continue World Vision's work with these kids and their families, more funds are urgently needed.
Donations can be made on the World Vision website.
