Opening a Child Friendly Space for Displaced Communities

In Cabo Delgado, where over 945,000 people have been internally displaced due to conflict, a humanitarian crisis continues to unfold. In June, after the attacks in the district of Ancuabe, around 106,000 people found themselves in the resettlement camps in the district of Metuge, where IsraAID was already present. We have since been working to establish a Child Friendly Space in the Nicavaco Resettlement Camp which we successfully opened last month.

After five days of training, our facilitators were ready to launch a new CFS in the Nicavaco Resettlement Camp. The training included aspects of child protection, psychosocial support for children, and communication skills for working work with children. After training, building the activities, and learning new songs and dances, everyone is eager to welcome the children to the new CFS on Monday

As we call it in Portuguese, 'Espaço Amigo da Criança' hosts around 300 children per day from ages 4-12 years old. We are excited to welcome the children every day, and they are always waiting for us to start with a huge smile and are really happy to have a space dedicated to them. 

"Our CFS is open from Monday to Thursday in a morning and afternoon shift. And every time we open for a new shift we learn something new. Most of the time from the children, but also from the parents, school teachers, and of course, from our amazing team of facilitators that have been working brilliantly every day with a huge smile on their faces and love in their hearts. I'm super proud of the amazing team we built to lead the Child Friendly Space, and very hopeful to see the amazing work they will do for the children and their community!" - Rafaella, IsraAID Mozambique Intern 

Thank you for supporting displaced communities in Mozambique.
