The B-YS is supporting Action for Child Trauma International in its steps to get established in Yemen. ACTI has years of experience worldwide in treating children who have lives shattered by conflict, violence and natural disasters, many of whom will go on to develop psychological trauma. Such is the case for innumerable children throughout Yemen following the years of conflict.
The first step for ACTI is to train practitioners, usually teachers and those already familiar with children, in the special skills required. The second step will be to support the programme of treatment of children by the practitioners throughout Yemen.
Thanks to assistance already being provided within Yemen and by Yemenis elsewhere, the training programme is already under way, and contributions towards the funding of these programmes will be very much welcomed. To donate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
