VIDEO: 'Song for Syria'
This powerful song is performed by 10-year-old Ansam, a Syrian girl who was born blind. The video was filmed in a war-ravaged part of Syria.
Children performing as part of the choir are all internally displaced and participate, along with Ansam, in UNICEF psychosocial support programmes. 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 was written and composed by Zaid Dirani, Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, and pianist, who donated it to UNICEF.
