Helping Gaza Children Cope with Trauma
In the past five years, Gaza has experienced three wars with the most recent, in the summer of 2014, being the most dangerous and destructive. The bombs have stopped falling, but the process of healing wounds is ongoing.
Through interactive and expressive activities, Anera is helping children cope with the things they experienced, allowing them to carry on with their everyday lives. The project involves more than 2,000 children at 15 preschools in different locations of Gaza.
This film takes you to a bright and quiet morning in Beit Hanoun, north of Gaza City, where 60 children, four teachers and five counselors gather for activities in an open field next to the destroyed Amjad Preschool.
Even after this war is over, the decimation of life and infrastructure in Gaza will take many years to overcome.
The miraculous work Anera’s team in Gaza is carrying out every day is fueled by the tremendous outpouring of solidarity and backing by our community.
