War Trauma Foundation and Salvation Army DR Congo have joined their local experience and expertise

to promote the psychosocial recovery and well-being of children as well as their caregivers (parents and teachers) in Kivu,

and to restore the economic resilience of youth.

We have developed a training programme to increase the resilience of teachers and childeren.

Since 2011 War Trauma Foundation has been collaborating with Ahfad University for Women (AUW)

to train mental health professionals and psychosocial workers

who are supporting displaced people,

and to establish effective systems for referral and treatment of people with severe mental health problems.

War Trauma Foundation supports families that face complex psychosocial problems in Palestine.

We introduced the Multi Family Approach.

Families share their experiences, understand each other’s problems, create new perspectives and inspire one another to change.

They overcome isolation and support each other, which contributes to their confidence and self-appraisal.

Emergency aid will be more efficient and attain more long-term targets if accompanied by Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS).

It enables meaningful participation, promotes dignity and strengthens the ability of people to support each other.

MHPSS contributes to breaking the ‘cycle of violence’ in conflict-affected communities.

27 November 2014, the

Improving the life of school children and their families

in the Caucasian republics Chechnya, Dagestan, Kabardino-Balkaria, Ingushetia and North Ossetia

we trained psychologists and counsellors

to recognize psychological problems and to create an atmosphere where children feel safe.




War Trauma Foundation strengthens mental health and psychosocial support in low resource communities affected by humanitarian crises.
