Creative Therapy

With over 4.7 million refugees and 6.6 million internally displaced persons (IDPs), Syria is now the largest humanitarian crisis of our lifetime. While the brutal living conditions of displacement severely affect all Syrians, the children are the ones to bear the most trauma of war: lost homes, lost security, lost communities, lost educations. These factors threaten to culminate in lost futures of an entire generation. Our Creative Therapy program for displaced Syrian children counters these traumatic factors by rebuilding bonds between mentor and child, rekindling inspiration and creativity, restoring confidence, and reclaiming the innocence of childhood.
