Palestinian territories

How to sit on your hands and facilitate

The Palestinian territories are amongst the most challenging areas for field workers and families alike, often dealing with multi-layers of complex psychosocial problems, including isolation.

So WarTrauma Foundation brought the Multi Family Approach (MFA) to organisations working on the West Bank in Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR). MFA means that families help support each other, share experiences, create new perspectives and inspire change by establishing women’s support groups.

The trainee teams are active villages as well as Nablus, Tulkarm and Jenin. Our partner: the Palestinian Institute of Community and Public Health of Birzeit University.
