What our supporters say about us

It was an incredible and unforgettable experience for me, which I will certainly repeat again!

It’s good that there are organizations like Life Needs Water that are actively working to tackle these abuses, and we’re also a little bit proud of being able to help make people feel better.

“Life needs Water” has convinced us and with this intention in the background a lot of time, care and enthusiasm has been put into making music. The willingness to donate within the group and the generosity of the people who attended our concerts was tremendous and a great sign of solidarity.

“I’m happy to have donated something for very sustainable projects!”
