The Sheffield Launch of a Healing Centre for Children in Khuza’a, Gaza, supported by Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign. The children of Khuza’a and neighbouring areas need our support. They have been subjected to terrifying incursions and bombings by the Israeli army. Hundreds of children in Kuza’a and neighbouring area are still suffering from psychological trauma.
Construction of a new centre is now finished. It’s a small building currently functioning as a play and heal area for children. The hope is to be able to develop it to have a professional programme for helping children, employing two child psychologists and play activists and a caretaker, under the supervision of Dr Usammah Frenah, Director of Gaza Community Mental Health Programme in the south of the Gaza Strip.
Middle Eastern Children Alliance has agreed to match whatever amount is raised towards starting this very important project.
