Hope with Art & Music, a show exhibiting statues, paintings and music art created by orphaned children aged 12-17 began on February 9th.
The whole program was started in 2005 by Professor Danny, Head of the Pediatric Department and of the Center for Pediatric AIDS and Infectious Diseases at Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem. It was designed to build the self-esteem of the boys and girls who participated in the show.
This year’s round up included 50 children who either made collage pictures, painted water colors, sculpted statues out of wood or made objects out of recyclable materials. There were also children who sang or played instruments with the popular band Addis Taem for the opening of the show attended by the Israeli Ambassador to Ethiopia Belaynesh Zevadia.
“Children I want you to look at me and see what I have become,” said Zevadia. “I want you to think, if Belaynesh has managed to become an ambassador, I can become anything I want.”
Monica Manaker and Elad Neeman musicians from Israel led the children in the songs. Later, the ambassador looked at the children’s art projects.
The event was organized by the Artists for Charity organization, Netsa Art Village, and Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity.
“If anyone is interested in purchasing the children’s pictures, we will open a bank account in their name and put their money there,” said Mihiret Kebede, the managing director of Netsa Art Village. “This is a great opportunity for them to be spotted by talent scouts because the pictures are very remarkable.”
The exhibit lasted until Saturday. The children had spent ten days prior to the event practicing for the show and painting the pictures with the artists from Netsa Art Village and Addis Taem Band.
AHOPE Ethiopia is a charity that specializes in the care of HIV-positive orphans and vulnerable children as well as their families. The organization works to improve their health and general living conditions. Though the Israeli embassy paid for the art supplies, Addis Taem, Netsa Art Village and Ale School of Fine Arts & Design participated in the event free of charge.
