Students at our Remember the River guitar program in Kurdistan wait for classes with their new instruments. The program
is taught and managed by Ramy Gorbil, who has been one of our treasured program participants since 2013.
Children whose families were forced to flee from Syria are excited about their new guitars! Jusoor provides support for
the program, while Remember the River provides the instruments and guitars. Our program participants from Syria, the Orontes
Guitar Quartet, provide the expertise and the inspiration.
We were honored to have the opportunity to send instruments to Mosul,Iraq. Most of the musical instruments in the ancient
city were destroyed under the three years of occupation by ISIS. Yet again, beauty and creativity win!
