On 22nd of December Polish Rett Syndrome Association in cooperation with Kraków City Council organized a special charity concert “For Silent Angels” in Kraków, in ICE Kraków Congress Center. It were wonderful two hours full of the best music – classical, rock and folk. For our Silent Angels played Sinfonietta Cracovia, Grzegorz Majzel and folk group Inacy.
Amongs audience there were dozen of girls with Rett syndrome. And although it was quite late for them, most of them managed to stay till the end and enjoy music (one even wanted to play with musicians).
The concert was part of the project “Mogę, Potrafię, Chcę” – “I Can, I’m Able To, I Want To” coordinated by Polish Rett Syndrome Association. The aim of the project is to promote modern technologies in alternative communication for people with Rett syndrome. We also want to raise funds for eye tracking sets in order to create a base for free of charge lending of this equipment to persons with Rett syndrome to support those families whose financial situation does not allow them to gain free of charge access to this technology so that they could learn about its capacities and make a decision. We managed to talk about our project in one of the biggest Polish commercial TV, in local TV, radio and newspaper. Other goal of that project is raising awareness about Rett syndrome in Poland.
