Emergencies cause children to experience things they never should. Processing these experience is a key step to moving forward.
Our spaces are run by skilled Child Protection Officers, trained in providing child-based psychological and social support. Through our fun activities, and particularly role-plays and art, World Vision create a space for children to express their feelings of fear and loss. Little by little, children grow in confidence and become more comfortable in expressing themselves through play. This process helps them realise that they are not alone and that they’re having a normal reaction to an abnormal situation.
