Music Heals

Musicians without Borders  provides community music projects for people dealing with trauma, fear, and isolation as a result of war and conflict.​ Through their programs and long-term commitment, participants from recent or on-going conflicts develop skills and talents, process grief and loss, and build bridges of reconciliation. They oversee adult and children music programs in Kosovo, the West Bank, Rwanda, Uganda, Northern Ireland, and refugees in The Netherlands.
