Then, IBC Sultanbeyli Community Center Children's Club students demonstrated the dance they prepared under training of their teachers. Adolescents supported their refugee rights by voicing their own rap song. Students who prepared the comedy show also succeeded in making the audience smile and happy with their performances. Songs spoken in choirs by children were voiced in Arabic and Turkish languages ​​and became the voices of refugee children.
