With the marking of 6 years of war in Syria, we are sharing with you a Syrian children’s song entitled “Heartbeat”.
Composed and donated to United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) by Zade Dirani, UNICEF Regional Ambassador for the Middle East and North Africa, the song is a message of hope from Syria’s children to the children and people of the world, with a simple request to get their childhood back.
The song is performed by 10 year-old Ansam, an internally displaced girl in Syria who was born blind. The song was shot in an area of Syria heavily damaged by the fighting. Children performing as part of the choir are all internally displaced and participate, along with Ansam, in UNICEF psychosocial support programmes provided by Awtar group.
