In Gaza, Growing Up After War

The casualties of war are not just physical, but psychological and spiritual, too.

The trauma from violence and loss of life can have long-lasting effects that impact the individual, the family and society, especially if the trauma is not addressed in a timely way. 

The effects can be more pronounced among children, who have not yet developed mechanisms to cope with stress and exhibit behavioral problems, violence, bedwetting and other developmental delays. 

In Gaza, several organizations are working to help children after the armed conflict with Israel in May, by providing mental health services and psychological support through a variety of programs. 

In this video, meet children in these programs and the community leaders seeking to help them.

For more on programs that are helping children and families in Gaza heal from trauma, read Visions That Dance in Their Heads in the December edition of ONE.
