How does an individual, a family and a community begin to heal from trauma? What does it look like for people to flourish after profound suffering and displacement?
At present, there are more than four million registered displaced people living in our country in West Asia, primarily from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Somalia. While the local government has made significant efforts to provide for refugees needs, there are major gaps in efforts towards recovery, resilience, and the prevention of long-term and multigenerational manifestations of trauma.
In this context a local church is creating a life-giving community and a space of rest. A place for relationships. A place for hospitality. A place for practical expressions of love for those who have suffered so much. Its approach is based on current research and demonstrable needs identified through several years of ministering to refugees in the city.
