Back to Istanbul- ** for relief workers **- working with the Syrian refugees **

JuDitta Ben David (ToWo) was invited again, to join TRI in Turkey, as a colleague and expert in the field of trauma treatment and resiliency building.
She will support in facilitating the Turkish training for Syrian refugee relief workers, therapists, counselors, social workers, and ngo aid.
This is the second time Juditta will arrive in Turkey for this cause, in 2015, to share the practice.
We do need your help !

Turkey has known many upheavals; As we know there are now close to 2 million Syrian refugees in Turkey. Most of them living in tent cities on the border. Arabic Kurdish and Yazidis. In order to continue to receive the basic support, of food health and schools, they cannot leave these tent cities. This situation is a breeding place for many severe problems, and leaves too many in survival mode. The therapists, counselors, and aid workers need all the support they can.
These trips and the work there are not paid for.
The training is given generously to the relief workers, training and accommodation are covered for; Yet the facilitators need to find ways to cover their own expenses. 
The cause is a good one, and definitely one requested and needed by the field. Last time we trained some 30 people, which found it very helpful and practical.
We need to raise funds to at least cover expenses of Juditta's travel, and accommodation there.
We're looking at an expense of 250 $ for the flight
and 300 $ for the accommodation
That is a modest request by all means.

Thanks !!

Working with displaced people, women men and kids, in such aggressive and war afflicted regions, where trauma and trauma symptoms are prevalent, and with so much uncertainty as to their future, is a tough call. 
These tools of emotional first aid are like fresh water to them.
