Silent Voices Enables Victims to Express Hope

Sara Shuhail, spoke about the event: by managing the ?Silent Voices III?, we prove that we are not only an organisers, but also we manage successfully the habilitation process by enhancing the victims? confidence and optimism towards better life, this will never happen without giving them the genuine chance to express themselves truly and proudly, the mission we succeeded in; hence, we are proud of such great deep humanitarian achievements.?


?We are grateful for the unlimited support and continuous follow up and wise direction that our leadership gives Ewaa Shelters to fulfil the vision and to the humanitarian mission? She added.


H.E Dr. Noura Al Kaabi, CEO of the Media Zone Authority-Abu Dhabi (twofour54), spoke about the event: ?although this exhibition is humanitarian and artistic, but also, it aims to raise awareness around the issue of human trafficking which is a global crime, moreover, it enhances the value of the arts in community life and in the life of every individual. We are deeply thankful for the sustainable support to the human rights  issues, and we do thank  Her Highness Shaikha Fatima Bint Mubarak ?the Mother of the Emirates? for patronizing this event, and we thank H.H Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan for being with us today to open this exhibition.?

About bringing the victims to world of art which supervised by the popular artist Jen Simon who gently guided the them, Maitha Al Mazroui, the Corporate Communication Manager at Ewaa Shelters, said: ? in the beginning all participants were afraid of drawing as all of them do not have the professional experience, but under the professional guidance and genius touches led by Ms. Simon, the victims were able to produce amazing paintings that reflect their hope, pain  and experience.?


?This exhibition in its third edition is different from the previous ones, as the artists ?victims? are different, their harsh stories they lived  and experienced are also different, but the common thing is all victims were able to express themselves deeply through arts driven by pain, hope and optimism.? ?Through the arts, we see the important role that creativity can play as part of the rehabilitation process.? Maitha Al Mazroui  added.
