Firefly, IMET2000 and ACT international are running a six-month pilot in Gaza treating children suffering from PTSD.

ACT International trains counsellors in accelerated trauma therapy (CATT) and the two counsellors in Gaza – Mohammed El Sharef and Haitham Mohammed have been trained by ACT and are receiving ongoing training and supervision from Dr Ghalia Al Asha in Jordan.

The children and young people they are working with are suffering PTSD due to the ongoing conflict on the border and the terrible conditions in Gaza. The project is running well at the moment and we hope that we can raise funds to let it continue in 2020.
