“The funds we generated through PEACE JAM 2014 were used to provide for a family in Afghanistan who lost three family members to a suicide bombing including two young sisters Parwana and Korshid. They now live in a nicer home with running water and electricity, the kids are going to school, and a better quality of life is now a reality,” Cordola says. “My hope is that with PEACE JAM 2015 , we can continue to help this family and others in need, including continuing our project ‘Girl With A Guitar,’ to teach girls in poor areas the guitar.”
Cordola began his journey through Pakistan and Afghanistan in 2010, collaborating with musicians on a peace-through-music project. “After visiting and meeting many kids who were living in poverty stricken areas and conflict zones, I decided to raise funds on their behalf, ” the musician recalls. “These Miraculous Love Kids’ lives are important, just as all our lives are important. I’ve become their friend, their advocate, their song and dance man. As Tom Petty sings: ‘You can stand me up at the gates of hell but I won’t back down.'”
