Psych Programme – Syria / Iraq
Since August 2017 we have been supporting a psychological support programme in the Bajed Kandala camp on the Iraqi border, home to over 11,000 Yazidis who have lost their homes and survived a genocide on their people.
The programme costs €2,200 per month (per trained psychologist) with each one working with roughly 18-20 patients a month. The backgrounds and problems vary, with most losing their homes or loved ones. Some of the women and children have recently come back from ISIS captivity.
Psychological support is key for the victims of the wars in Syria & Iraq, as those who have suffered so much try to rebuild their lives.
