The civil war in Syria, which has been taking place on many fronts for years, has caused countless human and financial tragedies. The number of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Syria and Iraq counts into the millions. Many people have fled the atrocities of war, others mourn the loss of relatives and property. The consequences of this are severe trauma. The aim of the project “Family Centre” is to offer as many people as possible a perspective for the future and to enable them to stay in their home country. The family centre is currently under development and is located in the province of Al-Hassaka, which currently accommodates around 450,000 IDPs. The target groups of the institution are women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities.
Women who have lost their husbands in the war receive psychological care from trained therapists and talk groups. In addition, traumatised children are offered psychological care, for example in the form of a painting therapy to deal with their trauma.
The facility under development also offers literacy courses as well as language and tutoring courses. It is also possible to offer first aid courses. An in-house kitchen supports families in need by offering one hot meal a day.
