Project Report | Dec 27, 2022
Remembering forgotten crises

By Jane Best | Project leader

We continue to see an alarming increase in the number of people displaced from their homes around the world. So it is more and more important to strengthen communities to withstand the upheaval and loss that accompanies displacement. While new conflicts hit the headlines, there are millions who have been displaced for decades and are forgotten.

The REI mission to focus on the long-term benefits for people living in the protracted, forgotten crises means we can make a big impact with small investments.

We talk regularly to our partners on the ground to learn about the current challenges and how they are building more independence in the communities.

The addiction program on the Thailand - Myanmar border has seen increased numbers in their clinics and the teams have handled the increased numbers efficiently. This demonstrates that they have been empowered through previous programs and are spreading their knowledge and skills to others in the community.

The students at Karenni Social Development Center have been working with the Internal Displacement (IDP) camp mentioned in a previous report with good results. The IDPs can disseminate their learning through those who can return to their villages and resist the pressures of the soldiers who are recruiting workers against their will.

The teachers of the kindergarten in Lebanon continue their training in psycho-social skills to support students who are badly affected by the uncertainty of their lives. One five-year-old boy was displaying unusual behaviour – he avoided eye contact and was aggressive with other students. Through agreement with the child’s parents, the psychologist assigned a shadow teacher to work with the student. He resisted the presence of the shadow teacher at first but things gradually began to improve until the student became more disciplined and less aggressive with others. He graduated in 2022 and has gone on to elementary school in Lebanon.

Thank you for continuing to support on the path to less dependence.
