Two Dubai-based student musicians are helping distressed families by providing essential baby items through music. 

The students are aiming to perform and upload 100 songs in 30 days to raise funds for Operation Smile UAE, Gulf News reported.

Student musicians Arjun Anand of Dubai College and Dev Vohra of Dubai International Academy, both 12, play saxophone, keyboard, and sing cover songs for the cause under the theme of ‘Music for Humanity.’ 

“We wanted to challenge ourselves by performing 100 songs in 30 days to help raise funds for this noble cause. This entailed multiple hours of self-learning and practice to prepare ourselves for the ongoing challenge,” Arjun was quoted as saying by Gulf News. 

The young musicians are aiming to raise AED5,000 in the span of 30 days, but the money that they have accumulated has now reached over AED10,000 as of this writing. 

So far, the organization that the students are helping have already distributed some 240 packs and another 150 are waiting to be distributed for the families in need of the supplies.
