Moscow Death Brigade raised another 55 000 Rubles for Sisters Center, a non-profit organization helping survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Russia as part of No Means No II campaign.
In spring 2021 MDB have raised and transferred 650 Euro to "Sisters" Center (Rus: Центр "Сёстры") an independent volunteer based organization in Russia that supports survivors of domestic and sexual violence and human trafficking since early 1990's. The amount was raised by selling "No Means No 2" T-shirts through Fire and Flames Music web store with all profits passed to the non-profit campaign. The T-shirt design was made by a Hamburg-based tattoo artist Rike daszausel, who have worked with MDB before on the benefit design for Women in Exile.
Initially the plan was to raise the funds for "Reborn" - a Russia-based rehabilitation center for women and girls, survivors of various types of violence. Reborn is in development since early 2021 by activists and veterans of non-profits from Moscow. Due to organizational difficulties the opening of "Reborn" has been postponed, so it's organizers asked MDB to pass the funds to Sisters Center instead, as the money would reach the people in need quicker that way.

Moscow Death Brigade and "Sisters" Center raised 5650 Euro for survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Russia through "No Means No" campaign in 2018-2020.
From Summer 2018 to Fall 2020 MDB have raised and transferred 5650 Euro to "Sisters" Center (Rus: Центр "Сёстры") an independent volunteer based organization in Russia that supports survivors of domestic and sexual violence and human trafficking since early 1990's. The amount was raised by selling "No Means No" T-shirts on tours and through Fire and Flames Music web store with all profits passed to the non-profit campaign. A Switzerland-based brand True Rebel Schweiz has also contributed 200 Swiss Francs to the campaign.
Many survivors of domestic and sexual violence, per-dominantly women, find themselves in unbearable situations unable to get help and support from any official sources - hence independent organizations like "Sisters" Center provide much needed respite for these people.

In May 2010 Moscow Death Brigade organized and took part in a benefit concert in Moscow with all profits (more than 1200 Euro) passed on to veterans of the World War II who fought against the Nazi and Axis forces during World War II.
