Welcoming new multicultural staff in Mosul
To better serve our patients from the Yazidi faith, our treatment center in Mosul has hired two new psychotherapists and a receptionist from the Yazidi religion. These additional staff have had an enormous impact on the branch making it one of the most religiously and ethnically diverse institutions in the city.
The diversity in the center had prompted patients and staff alike to continuously engage with one another on their cultures and languages. Our center manager has said it is a very happy situation for everyone.
Since October, our treatment center in Mosul has serviced 150 - 210 beneficiaries each month.
Women 82%, Children 10%, Men 8%
Help us get tools and toys for childrens' therapy room
The children who have been receiving long-term treatment have requested new toys, games and books. No Toys, books, or games have been added to the children’s treatment room since 2018. These items are especially important tools that therapists utilize for children’s psychotherapy. Often, children are unable or unwilling to speak about their experiences, and these simple objects of play allow them to express themselves more comfortably and securely.
The branch library needs books
The library in Mosul is a multi-purpose room but lacks sufficient reading material. With only 60 books, it is hardly a library. Staff has requested on Mental Health, treatment methods and medical reference. We also require children’s books and young adult novels for patients.
For direct donations of books and reading material please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Preparing for a second wave of COVID-19
With no vaccine available to the public in Iraq the potential for a second strict curfew in Mosul seems likely. Thankfully, our staff and patients are all accustomed to this change to digital treatment and tele-health when possible.
Fortunately, there is more than one way to help.
Share this project with friends and family, and let them know why the treatment center for survivor of ciolence and trauma in Mosul is worth supporting. With so many good causes out there, word of mouth is perhaps the most valuable tool at our disposal.
