Repairing broken hearts & minds

Syrian women in Al Ghouta are exposed to continuous shellıng, starvation, and little access to healthcare, all without an opportunity to leave their homes. They desperately need psychological support. You can help make sure they get it.

Story

Women living in besieged areas of Syria are dealing with some of the harshest living conditions. Confined to their homes, with little outside support and surrounding areas cut-off by armed forces, many have taken the lead as both primary caregivers and breadwinners to support their families. 

At the same time, these women are experiencing their own emotional trauma and grief. We at INSAN want to provide much needed psychosocial support to enable women to cope better and feel more in control of their lives in order to better support of their families and communities.

Our field team of 14 women in the besieged Eastern Al Ghouta, Rural Damascus has already been supporting women to cope with the impact of war, however insufficient practical training together with the extreme nature of cases they are dealing with means the support required is challenging. 

Why we require your support?

Through our crowdfunding campaign, we are asking for your support to be able to train our field team to deliver a psychosocial counselling programme for survivors of war. The evidence-based program, developed in the United States, has been adapted by us specifically for the Syrian context.

Our team will be trained to deliver the programme specifically to women recovering from the effects of war, enabling them to process and cope with emotional and physical trauma, to plan whilst living through war, and to help them grow and support others around them. Once trained, our field team will be able to help approximately 200 women every 12 weeks in group counselling sessions.

As our field team is based in a besieged area, we will be delivering this training via online conference sessions. Our field team will access training at our office in Eastern Al Ghouta, and in order to protect our team as much as possible we are offering a transport service to and from the office to avoid team members having to commute alone.

Please support our work and contribute to our campaign.

As an organisation we do not have any other access to direct funding, that is why crowdfunding is incredibly important for us in order to raise money quickly for essential health projects. Because of this lack of direct funding, if we do not reach our fundraising target the project cannot go ahead - we simply do not have any other method to ‘top-up’ to the budget required. For more info on this - please see CanDo’s FAQs ‘What is all-or-nothing crowdfunding?’ and ‘What happens if a campaign doesn’t reach its target?’ 

Please support us however you can.

 

Thank you.
