Our deaf workshop leader Halimeh Sarabtah Deaf continues her beautiful work in Palestine. Before the summer, we gave her several big drums to use with deaf children.

Our partner, Sounds of Palestine, is looking for someone to help bring two violins from Colorado to Amsterdam sometime in the next month. If you know someone who can help, please contact: info@soundsofpalestine.org

104 children, three weeks, three choirs, three orchestras, two performances: it was a busy August for our partners Sounds of Palestine!
