War Child – A Charity Helping Children To Learn To Live

Emotional support is the key to War Child’s activities to help the children caught up in war to learn to live.  In the Gamawa displacement camp, near the city of Duhok in northern Iraq, several children from 100 families and their parents have had two years of psychological support from War Child.

Escaping Isis after the brutality of war and seeing atrocities, caseworker reported the children came with history of waking up screaming, fearful to play outside, being scared of the dark, crying or screaming, lashing out aggressively, and bedwetting.  This unique support is not seen as an emergency response to war, however, it has been vital in the stopping spiralling consequences.  These include damaged family ties and school work is negatively affected.  In turn it leads to hopes of future careers being dashed, anger and domestic violence.  Children like Eman want to be a lawyer to help humanitarian cases and Osama overcame fear of walking alone and plans to be a firefighter.

A retired midwife who enjoyed a satisfying career after years of rejecting it as a career choice. After becoming a Mum for the second time, somehow I just could not resist the call to midwifery any longer. Being part a family's important event gave more insight into how women, me included, both manage and sometimes muddle through pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood. Wisdom shared and gleaned from stories as well as healthy lifestyle tips and healthy recipes will hopefully answer your need. Someone once said to me that we have one body, one life, one voice so why not make it count. So here's to looking after all three and making a difference. Enjoy and I welcome any comments.
