A whole generation of young traumatized children is growing up inside of middle eastern refugee camps under disastrous circumstances. It is our mission to give these children hope and a perspective. If you want to support us with our mission, we together can help these children in Lebanon and Jordan to overcome their past and become emotionally well and whole again.
There is another way:
back to life
Children in refugee camps have very often experienced highly traumatic situations. When asking a refugee child to imagine their “safe place”, they draw soldiers and tanks. The Leyla project wants to guide a way out of this despair – this can well be illustrated by impressive paintings of a course participant in the Zaatari Camp …
Traumatized children can be emotionally stabilized if their mothers are able to convey them a sense of safety and trust. That is why we train female local trauma advisors. They go into the camps, strengthen the mothers and enable them to improve the mental health of their families sustainably.
The experienced teams of our partner organization in Lebanon and Jordan are ready to help the children.
The approach has been successfully tested and is being accompanied by professionals from Germany.
The project can begin, if you support us with your donation. Thank you so much!
