The Piano Keys for Syrian Kids is an impact area fund initiated by the Fehmi family as an avenue to support Syrian refugees through musical events. The purpose of the Fund is to primarily support organizations providing humanitarian aid and other assistance to young Syrian refugees. Currently the Fund supports UNICEF’s work in Syria. UNICEF is making critical efforts to minimize the impact of the crisis on children – including in the life-saving areas of health, nutrition, immunization, water and sanitation, as well as education and child protection.Donate to this Fund
Student-run events succeed in bringing hope to hundreds of Syrian youth
On March 25, 2017, the 2nd Piano Keys for Syrian Kids benefit was held at the Steinway Piano Gallery of Detroit. For the 2nd year, high school students Ziad and Omar Fehmi led the effort with a group of young pianists Brian Jiang, Mathew Yonan, James Naaman, Maria Mansour, and Ivan Petukhov. Thanks to these student leaders; the concert was a wonderful success, and the event sold out. We raised more than $15k to support Syrian children through UNICEF USA. The first year’s event, held in February 2016, raised more than $10K. All of us at CAAP are thrilled to work with the Fehmi family to maximize their impact!
