Here at Kyaka II UNHCR Refugee Camp, musicians and dancers from Mubende entertain approximately 500 men, women and children who have been displaced by the war in neighboring DR Congo. Musicians for World Harmony’s Founding Director, Samite Mulondo, brought the MUSIC Heals Program* to this central/western refugee community for an afternoon and evening of joy and relief from daily camp life. Not only were refugees entertained, local musicians and dancers were employed as well. MUSIC Heals is a program created by MWH to bring the healing power of music into communities in desperate need of an outlet for expression and a means of coping.
