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.
Choosing a Gift for Peace is also an opportunity to share your values and reflect together on what it means to share joys 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.
