On World Refugees Day, the refugees and the host communities participated in the Music Dance and Drama (MDD) to create co- existence with the host communities.
This year’s event on Monday was organized by Mercy Corps to use MDD to bring refugees to live in harmony with the host communities in Kampala.
The Mirrors group refugees from Burundi excited the audience with their rhythmic dance and drumming at the event held at Tick Hotel.
The performers entered the hall while sounding the drums carried on their head, decorated in their national colours attracting the audience as they summer sorted jumping high in the air.
In a short-choreographed play, they demonstrated how they face discrimination among some host communities especially as regards job opportunities
The Congolese people put up a Lingala dance in which they are known that Juliana Ateme, the UNHCR Assistant in-charge Community Based officer almost lost her wrist watch.
Ateme staked her wrist watch and announced that if anybody danced better than her would take her watch.
She later paid undisclosed money to rescue the watch after the youths wigged their bodies better than her.
