VIDEO: 10 year-old Ansam, born blind, performing “I Will Return” UNICEFmena | CHILDREN IN SHADOW:::CHILDREN IN WAR BLOG
10 year-old Ansam, born blind, performed at a first ever ‘children’s musical concert’ supported by our partner Awtar in Damascus on UNICEF’s 70th anniversary. Ansam’s family was displaced displaced by fighting from Harasta in Rural Damascus.
With help from UNICEF, she now attends a psychosocial support programme where she learned how to play oud and guitar.
Ansam’s songs are used in UNICEF-supported child friendly centers across Syria to foster emotional development, creativity, and psychosocial wellbeing for children who have been through deeply traumatic experiences.
