During the musical workshop in the orphanage, the children enjoyed the different activities in a morning of singing, dancing, and listening to different music presented to them by the two Israeli musicians. Pianist Ohad Hitman and cellist Yoed Nir are contemporary musicians who make their music an expressive language that bridges the classical and contemporary music worlds.
Israel Ambassador Daniel Zonshine, the embassy staff and the two musicians chose to work with HIV infected children in Myanmar, in order to accord them the love and respect that they really need.
In addition to the musical workshop, the Embassy of Israel donated a Recreation Trolley containing story books, comics, drawing books, and toys to the children of the orphanage.
