The Global Embassy of Activists for Peace (GEAP), as part of the activities programmed during the 4th Peace Integration Summit (CUMIPAZ, Guatemala 2018), held a symphonic concert at the Finca La Industria de Escuintla refuge camp, which serves to those affected by the eruption of the Volcán de Fuego that occurred last June.
This social work carried out under the program "The Power of Music for the peace and happiness of the integral human being", was carried out with the purpose of sharing with the children positive musical messages, teaching, and providing a moment of fun for the families who live there.
The musicians of the Symphony Orchestra of the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace (OSEMAP), began the day with the visit to the school that is in the camp, with the purpose of extending an invitation to the children to attend the musical event.
In a colorful setting the OSEMAP interacted with the 500 children of the 260 refugee families, through didactic and recreational dynamics, sharing musical messages of hope and love, with teachings that promote teamwork, gratitude, human and environmental values and music as an instrument of social unity.
If you can believe it, you can achieve it!
Gabriela Lara, general director of the GEAP, thanked, on behalf of the institution, all the people that make up this community for allowing them to carry out the activity. She also told the children that they should always remember that life is a gift, despite the adverse circumstances that arise.
"What matters is what is in each of your hearts because if you can believe it, you can achieve it," concluded Lara.
For her part, the coordinator of pre-primary on behalf of the director of the institution, Marisol Contreras, expressed her thanks to the GEAP for bringing the children this musical presentation.
For the GEAP, music is a power that reaches directly to the soul of the individual, which impacts the heart of a person, and benefits the social, intellectual, moral and spiritual development of the human being.
The next presentation of the OSEMAP will be at the Inaugural Gala of CUMIPAZ, Guatemala 2018, in the Symphonic Concert of the Peace Integration Summit to be held on October 3, at 5:00 p.m.
