This gift is helping to provide a counselling session with a trained counsellor, ensuring kids like Tarek¹ get the mental health support they need to heal.
Children arriving at the clinics aren't smiling or making much noise. Trained counsellors are encouraging kids to draw their experiences as a way of helping them deal with their trauma.
Tarek received counselling sessions with Budour¹ (pictured on the card), a trained counsellor, who shared:
"In the second session I found some changes in him. He was calm and sat on the chair. I believe he will get better."
With your support, kids have a chance at the childhood they deserve.
Christmas is an opportunity to share your values and reflect together on what it means to share joy with others.
When you order your gift for a kid, we will also send you an additional blank postcard, inviting you to write a message or encourage your young child, grandchild or loved one to draw a picture of support for children in Gaza. If you’d like to send it back, we will pass it on to the team on the ground.
