The following announcement was provided by Massage Aid:
In 2019, local Massage Therapists and Reiki Practitioners came together and donated their time
and services to raise money to help the people of Yemen and Massage Aid For Yemen was born.
All the proceeds were donated to Doctors Without Borders earmarked for Yemen. Watertown
Citizens for Peace, Justice and the Environment co-sponsored the event and were instrumental
in getting the word out and provided refreshments.
Now that the COVID Pandemic is better under control, Massage Aid is back and this time their
efforts are going to help provide much needed relief to the earthquake survivors of Turkey and
Syria. The First Parish Church of Watertown has generously agreed to donate the space for free
again and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders earmarked for
Turkey and Syria. The Watertown Citizens Refugee Support Group which is a working group of
Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice & the Environment is co-sponsoring the event.
