Kumamoto to Aleppo: the Universality of Experience

Continued thanks for help in Japan
Continued thanks for help in Japan

One particularly good thing about global medical knowledge and expertise is that it only gets better with time.   On July 31st of this year IMCRA held its long-awaited colloquium and workshop focused on lessons learned from the long-term aspects of disaster recovery.

Since that time we have been involved in translating both the presentations given and the the insights gleaned from participants involved in the workshop.

An outstanding finding is that what we are learning about how people survive and react to the aftermath of a horrifying experience is as applicable in the multiduninous refugee camps of Europe and the Mediterranian as it is the homes and hospital rooms of terrorism victims in Nice and now Berlin.  While IMCRA cannot prevent horrors, both manmade and natural, from taking place, we can be instrumental in remedying the havoc they cause worldwide. 

Our goal is to demonstrate, in sharing this expertise worldwide that, despite recent political events in the United States, there remain millions who see beyond short term reactionary furor, and understand that humanity can survive only as a global community which shares knowledge, understanding and compassion.  Please join us in sustaining this effort and hopefully making the future less uncertain.
