21 Kids Recovery

By Dr. Laila Risgallah Wahba | Project Leader


21 Kids have enrolled in  Not Guilty's Divorce Care this term. This is a joint partnership with DC4K. It is a 13-week program tackling different subjects for kids aged 5 to 13. Despite the trauma the kids suffer, finding recovery programs for kids is the least of the parents' priorities. Since many parents go from double to single income, it is hard to make ends meet.
Furthermore, finding time to send their children to recovery programs is complex. Many of the kids are from faraway places that desire more than one transportation, hence more cash to reach the Not Guilty office.
Add to this that many single parents need two jobs to make ends meet, and you will get the picture of the hardship of sending their children to Ma7boubin every week.
And yet, we were pleasantly surprised to have 21 children enrolled this time for Ma7boubin, the divorce care for kids program.
Of the 21 kids who attended the first session, It's Not Your Fault, when asked if they thought the divorce was somehow their fault, 18 raised their hands. What a burden to carry. The guilt and shame they grow with need to be dealt with early on.
Praise God, when asked if you were involved when mum and dad decided to marry? They answered no.
And when they decided to get a divorce, you were not a part of the decision either. It's a big people decision.
We could see the burden fall off their shoulders.

Sammy who is eight years old commented that for the first time he feels it is not his fault that his parents divorced.

"I always thought that they dovorced becsue I was getting bad grades at school."

We cannot do this without you.
Thank you for your continuous support.
