Winners in the Magnificat String Competition

Congratulations to Mustafa al-Kurd from Aida refugee camp and Retaj Zboun from al-Azzeh refugee camp for winning the 1st and 2nd prize in the Magnificat String Competition in Jerusalem. They played three pieces during the competition and Mustafa performed again two days later during the Winners Concert. We are very proud of them, especially since the last weeks were far from easy: an increase of army raids during the night disturbs the children’s sleep and creates lots of stress among the children in the camps. Mustafa and Retaj, together with all the other children from Sounds of Palestine, show us real resilience and hope for the future!
