Team story

[lt]div[gt]Trauma can have a life-destroying effect on a child's life. With the continual bombardments of Gaza, UNICEF estimates that over 400,000 children there are suffering from severe trauma [[url=http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=48532#.VV2r-1VViko]click here for report[/url]].[lt]/div[gt][lt]div[gt] [lt]/div[gt][lt]div[gt]It can no longer be described as Post-Traumatic. It is ongoing and chronic. Affected children can often scarcely focus for 30 seconds at a time. This destroys any prospect of education, and bed-wetting and nightmares run rife.[lt]/div[gt][lt]div[gt] [lt]/div[gt][lt]div[gt]One of the most effective types of therapy for these children to help enable them resume some semblance of normality is psychosocial therapy. Through UK charity, Hope and Play, we are looking to raise funds to provide this for 100 children in Gaza. You can read more about this on their website [url=http://www.hopeandplay.org/education-for-500-traumatised-children-in-gaza/][click here][/url].[lt]/div[gt][lt]div[gt] [lt]/div[gt][lt]div[gt]To make the project more sustainable, your donation will also be used to educate graduates in the delivery of psycho-social counselling, with the aim of leaving a larger capability for this work in Gaza as a part of each project.[lt]/div[gt][lt]div[gt] [lt]/div[gt][lt]div[gt]The cost of delivering this is £34 per child for 4 months. This covers training of therapists, pay for therapists and facilitators, supplies (arts, books, course materials, etc), running costs of the centres used (hire, electricity, etc), festival days of celebration and day trips for the children, and all administrative costs in Gaza. Hope and Play retain NONE of your donation or Gift Aid - all donations are passed through to the programme.[lt]/div[gt][lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][i][b]£2 [/b]will fund 1 Gazan child for 1 week's invaluable trauma therapy[/i][/p][lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][i][b]£34[/b] will fund 1 child for a full 4-month course of therapy[/i][/p][lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][i]For information on supporting events we will be holding for this cause, please go to and like our [url=https://www.facebook.com/OrkneyFriendsofPalestine]Facebook page[/url] [[url=https://www.facebook.com/OrkneyFriendsofPalestine]click here[/url]].[/i][/p]
