Joyful sounds of singing, music, and laughter aren’t often associated with refugee camps. However, since 2007, Bidna Capoeira charity has been inspiring these sounds by sharing the joy of capoeira with thousands of children and communities in camps, safe houses and youth reformatory centres throughout the Middle East.
Beyond the smiles and laughter, participants benefit from empowerment, social inclusion, and the confidence and freedom to express themselves through capoeira-based fun and play. Bidna Capoeira is now opening a permanent office in Palestine and scaling up its UK presence.
If you want to see how capoeira makes a difference in the harshest environments then watch this short video (3:45) of Al Tanf Refugee Camp located in the no man’s land between the Syrian and Iraqi borders.
