"When we start a workshop in a refugee center, many of us are strangers to each other. Yet, generally, within a few minutes we are playing together with the openheartedness of children. That’s the power of music – it bridges the divides of language, origin, cultures and customs. It can lift a weary heart and heal trust that has been broken. What a way to welcome new people to my country!"
- Franka, workshop leader
In honor of World Refugee Day and World Wide Music Day (June 20-21), join us in promoting access to music as a fundamental human right and a celebration of diversity, freedom and equality. The continuation of our work with refugees and war-torn communities depends on your support. Please give today, any amount helps.
Halimeh Sarabtah is deaf, but that didn’t stop her from realizing her dream and study special education, so she can help children with special needs, blind and deaf. And now, also with music.
Halimeh followed the Music Workshop Leadership training of Musicians without Borders and Holy Land Trust in Palestine which allowed her to incorporate music into her work.
Halimeh also participated in the recording of a rap song, where the lyrics were written by deaf participants of MwB’s training. Watch it here.
Musicians without Borders uses the power of music to heal the traumas of war and to connect divided communities for peace and positive change. Click here to sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date with our projects, stories, and music.
