Children are confined in refugee camps, sometimes even without their parents. Everything they had is gone. The cities they lived in; their houses and schools have been turned into ruins. The future of these children is uncertain to say the least.
Front Line mental support through music schools in refugee camps. A specific program is offered to children and young adults. In order to reach this objective, the foundation unites forces with local professional teachers and cooperates with other organizations.
Making music has a therapeutic effect; playing is a joyful activity.
Music connects and unites; music is the only shared world language.
More attention and compassion for those who have fled crisis situations.
Connect by Music brings music to front line locations where victims from conflict areas are given shelter. With a specific music program, tailored to the situation, psychosocial support is provided. The program effectively gives support to people being depressed and suffering from traumatic experiences.
Connect by Music is active in the reception locations of Greece (both on the island as on the mainland) with a strong focus on unaccompanied minors. They received various rewards for their work, including a reward from the Greek Ministry of Migration.
Nowhere else is the power of music expressed as strongly as in these locations.
