Three Days Grace and World Vision Canada are celebrating World Humanitarian Day with the release of a new video for the Kenya Project, a MTN Of Hope social justice initiative that was created by the band. The clip offers fans a look at Matt Walst and Neil Sanderson’s 2018 trip to Kenya in which they got a firsthand look at the different things that could be done to help the communities in the area.
“We were inspired everywhere we went and by everyone we met because what we experienced isn’t what we thought it would be. I learned that poverty is not hopelessness. Hope is around every corner; sometimes you just have to look for it.
When you meet communities of families and children who mostly live off $2 a day, but greet you with the biggest smiles and are so full of hope and resilience, it makes you take stock of your life and how lucky we are to be born in Canada. We were given every resource and freedom to create opportunities at making a career as a band. Now we have an opportunity to use our career to build awareness and invite our fans from all over the world to join us at creating change to people that can use a hand up.”
The Kenya Project seeks to protect children from violence and to provide them with clean water. The group previously donated $1 from every ticket sold for their fall 2018 Canadian tour to the initiative.
