He became an official ambassador of UNICEF Austria in 2017.
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 I also know that many people are far less blessed and live in difficult situations.
My humanitarian work and engagements 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 and helped to build a proper water system in many schools around Syria.
“Dreamland” is a place where the dreams come true. Together we can help children who are in difficulty to create their own dreamland: a place that has peace, education, and proper health care.
How it started…
In June 2017, Yury Revich played at the opulent and amazing opening of the famous Viennese Life Ball.
It is the worldwide biggest charity event in support of HIV/Aids and is live broadcasted in many countries.
As part of “Friday Nights with Yury Revich“, a concert was organized in June 2016 in support of the charitable organization “Dancer Against Cancer/MY Aid“. The net gain of this event was donated to an onco-psychological institution.
The net profit of this crossover-concert supported the integration initiative “Voices of Refugees Choir”, under the supervision of Kerem Sezen. The choir was given the possibility to play together with famous artists such as Yury Revich or actress Mercedes Echerer.
Yury Revich initiated the charity Gala concert “All for Autism” for the Austrian Umbrella Association for Autism in Austria in 2015.
With music as a universal language, this crossover project has the possibility to reach different interest groups and thus rises awareness for autism.
We are very happy that this public work shows first results as with beginning of 2018, the diagnosis can be cleared through the legal Austrian social security.
This successful concept is still going strong, and another concert took place on 28th of April 2019 at the famous Wiener Musikverein.
