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.

When fear of ‘the other’ is used to divide and control, connecting people across divides becomes a radical act. We train musicians to empower people who, as refugees, are often marginalized, maligned and excluded. We celebrate their talents and help build connections with their new communities.
Music can offer safety to the most vulnerable, community to the displaced, and a voice to the unheard.
We need your support to continue this work! Please give today.
