CANCELLED: Healing Centre Launch
November 24, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED. WE will announce a new date as soon as we can.
Sheffield PSC together with our partners in Gaza Never Stop Dream Centre are building a new Healing Centre. It is in the heart of the Khuza’a, a town on the sout east border with Israel. It aims to be a calming place, dampening the trauma suffered by children from the town and the wider neighbourhood – a safe place to play and, as the staff get more experience, a place to heal.
Khuza’a has been subjected to the most horrific attacks by the Israeli army during the last ten years.
In 2014 one third of the town was wiped off the map during operation Protective Edge. Many many children suffered severe trauma both in Khuza’a and in the neighbouring areas, adding to the numbers of of severely traumatised children documented by the UN and other agencies.
Recently during the Great Return March, 100s within the 20000 injured were from Khuza’a adding yet more to the suffering.
With your tremendous support and amazing efforts of our partner Never Stop Dreaming Centre against all odds (the siege of Gaza prevents easy supply of building materials for example) the building has been completed.
Now we are in the process of buying the furniture and it will be functioning in two to three weeks.
Please come to the launch of the healing centre.
