Though support for music and other forms of cultural expression is often viewed as a low priority in humanitarian assistance programmes for refugees, AKMI believes that art and music offer a unique resource and can sustain hope and provide an intangible, yet indestructible link to cultural memory, which, eventually becomes the catalyst of cultural revitalisation.

  1. The foundations who serve refugees in terms of shelters and other needs are really humanitarian. Their love, care and kindness for helpless people become the part of history. It cannot be forgotten in the human history.
