Following recent experiences with caring for a loved one, estuary PR’s Managing Director, Liza Miller, identified an urgent need to create a platform for promoting care, empathy, compassion, kindness and love. “We often take the simple things in life for granted such as our wondrous ability to breathe. Everyday thousands of people suffer from lifelong ailments that compromise their ability to do basic daily functions as well as their quality of life. There are so many broken members of our society. How are we taking care of these neglected people who line our hospital emergency wards as they watch life’s clock tick?” questioned Miller.

This fundraising series was conceptualised as a quarterly production, which will raise funds for various beneficiaries who face the trials of sustaining spiritual, emotional and physical well-being in the face of managing medical challenges. The inaugural concert, An Evening of Healing with Music – Vol. I, brings a diverse cast of performers in terms of age and talent together to address the indiscriminate nature of aging and illness. In reflecting on the concept, Miller shared, “Aging and illness care not for one’s age, race, class, profession nor nationality. These are experiences that impact not only those aging and ill but also their loved ones and caregivers. Who is caring for the caregivers? What little can each of us do to nurture caring?”
