LiTPEACE is supporting the United Nations Association in Sweden with the massive influx of Syrian refugees.
Nine Million refugees have fled from Syria alone since March 2011. Half of them are children. As little victims of plight, the children miss out on natural development through play and education. These children need the same care and security as any child in the world.
While a little child’s experience may seem far down on the political priority list in traumatic events, attention paid to the early years of life have a big impact on the person and collectively on society. “The basic architecture of the brain is constructed through a process that begins early in life and continues into adulthood,” reports Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child.
By training volunteers in the UN Association, we will serve the small children in the refugee camps to alleviate their trauma of flight, provide them with age appropriate learning activity and acclimate to their new environment. We bring the Suna Movement Adventure games in their native language, Arabic, the language of their host country, Sweden, and the international language, English.
Regardless of the trauma these children have endured, they, too, shall have a right start physically, mentally, emotionally and socially as they benefit from the carefully designed activities.
With your support, these children may grow into thriving responsible world citizens in a culture of peace. Each $100 makes a volunteer program reaching 20-30 children possible! (That’s less than $5 to affect the life of one child)
