Syrian parents are very worried at the signs of trauma that they see developing now in their children as the conflict inn their country enters its fifth year. Many of children have lost their homes, schools and everything that was familiar; some have lost relatives or seen with their own eyes barbaric horrors being committed.
Next week a course funded by Barnabas will train a group of Syrian church leaders in trauma counselling with a special emphasis on helping children, teenagers and families. They will then teach these skills to others, so that the youngsters can be helped. Pray for God’s blessing on the course and that the ripples that spread out from it will bring healing and wholeness.
