Aid for the affected region
After the devastating cyclone in Mozambique, tens of thousands of affected people are in urgent need of support. The situation on the ground remains very difficult. Outside the airport, many regions can hardly or not at all be reached, and parts of the country are completely cut off from the outside world. Neighbouring countries Malawi and Zimbabwe are also affected. Together with our local contacts, we are currently examining the possibility of an assessment to prepare an emergency pedagogical mission. Donate and support our work after natural catastrophes.
Emergency pedagogic interventions of the Friends are addressed at psychologically traumatized children and adolescents in war zones and disaster areas. Emergency pedagogy helps stabilize affected individuals psychologically and socially. This is done by supporting them in their efforts to process the traumatizing events, and thereby integrate them into their own biography. Through the activation of the body‘s self healing powers, possible long-term post-traumatic stress disorders can be minimized or avoided altogether. Our emergency pedagogic interventions are based on conceptions of Waldorf education and closely related therapeutic instruments.
