Nura,9, lives in Dhaisha Refugee Camp near a watch tower. She frequently hears the sounds of bullets and smells tear gas, and, as a result, suffers from anxiety, fear, and hopelessness. Blossom Hill Fellow Rami Khader targeted her school and suggested she join his Makan group therapy sessions, along with other classmates, ages 8-12, who were directly affected by violence. These children have difficulty sleeping, concentrating, and regulating their emotions, often feeling alone and unable to express their emotions. Through tailored structured recreational activities, Nura and her fellow classmates were able to process their experiences and develop new coping skills in a safe and supportive environment. Nura said: “I feel happy. It’s the first time that I forgot about my worries and had hope.”
