“After working abroad for nearly 10 years, I have seen first hand the importance and need for mental health and psychosocial support. Healing ‘broken minds’ is essential to restore individuals and rebuild communities”
“It suddenly struck me – some of our team members have been working in CBR for nearly seventeen years. They take such great pride in providing help to women and are so highly respected within their communities.”
“We need to endorse inclusion of psychosocial support into humanitarian aid, it is key for individuals and communities to be able to continue after crises”
“In my opinion making a profit is not a humans most important mission in life. Having a peaceful and happy existence together is.”
“I believe mental wellbeing is the key to resilience”
“What I really like about volunteering for this organisation is that I´m involved in such an indispensable good cause, war and conflict being our daily world theatre, something I never experienced in my earlier work so strongly!”
“Mental health is key in community reconstruction after crisis”
“Contributing to WarTrauma Foundation projects is a unique opportunity, not only to cooperate with local colleagues, but also to increase access to basic mental health care for vulnerable populations, in places where it is most needed.”
“My last training for WarTrauma Foundation in Lesbos, on Psychological First Aid, was very impressive as the refugee crisis in Europe is all over the news. It showed me how important the work of WarTrauma Foundation and other NGO’s really is”
“The world is facing an unprecedented number of humanitarian crises arising from conflicts, violence or natural disasters. WarTrauma Foundation believes that the need for capacity building in mental health and psychosocial support becomes accordingly more important.”
Working for War Trauma Foundation and for Intervention is demanding but very inspiring; it gives me energy!
In working with War Trauma we have found a partner, who is genuinely interested in our project. They help with fundraising, but more importantly, they also join us in reflection and with practical suggestions linking us to experts who can further advance our project.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

The first training of WarTrauma added a lot for me. Now I can see different perspectives of impact of old trauma on survivors. From that point we helped the refugee communities in Sudan to build their resilience and to come back to life.
When I see with how much dedication and compassion the community workers in Sudan and the Palestinian Territories talk about their support to war affected communities, I know how much our work matters.

“Trauma is an underestimated form of suffering that often happens in silence and loneliness. WarTrauma tries to break this silence. Especially for groups that are already silenced and marginalized. Important projects and I am proud that I am, even though sideways, part of it.”
