Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Bri­tish rock band Cold­play has be­come pa­trons of the char­ity, which has saved the lives of thou­sands of refugees and mi­grants flee­ing war and per­se­cu­tion in the Mid­dle East. The band has thrown their sup­port be­hind MOAS (Mi­grant Off­shore Aid Sta­tion), which op­er­ates pro­fes­sional search and res­cue mis­sions in the Mediter­ranean and Aegean seas, re­ported The Guardian.

About the cause, the band’s front­man Chris Martin (right) said, “Ev­ery year MOAS res­cue thou­sands of peo­ple who risk death at sea while search­ing for a bet­ter life. But for an ac­ci­dent of ge­og­ra­phy, those peo­ple could be us and we could be them. For this rea­son, we’re proud to sup­port MOAS’ life-sav­ing work.” The an­nounce­ment was made through a fundrais­ing film called Res­cue Hu­man­ity.
