Update: Helping Syrian Refugees in the Middle East

As you know, over 11 million people have died or fleed from Syria as a result of this protracted humanitarian crisis. In an effort to address this situation, Libraries Without Borders has partnered with a number of international aid organizations in the Middle East to support refugees who have been displaced by the conflict in Syria. Through the Ideas Box, we have provided Syrian refugees living in Jordan, Lebanon & Iraq a place where they can learn new, practicable skills as well as escape the trauma they have endured through literature, art, and a number of cultural activities. These opportunities are particularly important for the 2.5 million children who have been out of school since the conflict began 6 years ago.

Through our Ideas Box programs in the Middle East, we offer workshops and activities customized to address the complex mental health needs of adults and children, which if left untreated could yield far-reaching, intergenerational impacts, including learning difficulties & depression. In addition to facilitated programs, the Ideas Box itself offers a safe & dynamic space where refugees can engage in creative techniques such as drawing, reading, writing, storytelling & unstructured play, which build resilience, encourage healing after trauma & promote improved psychological well-being & social functioning.

Despite instability in the region, we are committed to expanding upon our work in the Middle East, especially so that we may address the wide-ranging needs of the Syrian refugee population. We thank you for your continued support!
