Musical instruments for refugee communities

Requested by

Harmony of Hope

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Our work with refugee communities aims to use music to heal, unite and alleviate suffering whilst at the same time providing the groundwork for sustainable development and cross-cultural community work. Music can promote appropriate behaviour in vulnerable groups and enhance the quality of life of those beyond medical help. Our work is concerned with inner healing following traumatic situations with a view to achieving positive social change in the society.

What is your project and how will it help?

We are requesting 100 Tamborim (or similar small, hand-held drums) for creative workshops, music therapy, group work and individual musical development. These instruments will enable us to create an impact in volatile and disenfranchised communities where hope is not always visible. Music Therapy is an established health profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. After assessing the strengths and needs of each client, the qualified music therapist provides the indicated treatment including creating, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, clients’ abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives. The sound of music CAN be heard above the sound of pain and we aim to offer this hope to those who have suffered in this region.

How can other people partner with you on your project?
