WIZO extends a plea to bear in mind the vulnerable Israel youth who continue to live under threat of rocket fire.
We all hope that 2022 brings a better year ahead for us all and a gradual return to normality with the continued ability to see one another wherever we are in the world. However, as Israel moved from one crisis to another, from pandemic to conflict, the lives of vulnerable and at-risk children and youth in WIZO’s care were further traumatised by the ongoing disruption, uncertainty and insecurity.
The continued barrage of rocket fire resulted in long stays in bomb shelters, many bare of basic creature comforts. This crisis highlighted the escalated threat and the need to make shelters more comfortable and less daunting.
Therapy has always been an integral part of WIZO’s programmes to support those in our care, and the impact of the last year on our young people has necessitated increased and additional therapies including art, music and psychotherapy. With your help, we can minimise the long term effects of these frightening and traumatic experiences by transforming all our shelters into friendlier refuges, and developing our range of therapies to support the emotional fallout.
Together we can help those who depend on us to find a safer place from which to change their lives and build a better future. Every penny makes a difference and can dramatically change a life.
