Trauma in people manifests in ways that most people do not even recognise as the effects of unresolved traumatic experiences. We have become aware that there are so many causes of trauma in Namibia: every day more people are traumatized by, amongst others, accidents, abuse and domestic violence, natural disasters like floods and famine, diseases such as HIV/AIDS, work related stress, rape, robbery, divorce, suicide, murder and the death of loved ones.

People are struggling with the pain of their heart wounds because they have difficulties coping with their trauma and to move on in life.

Our project is community-based and makes use of the Bible’s message of hope and healing, as well as basic mental health principles.

Through it, we want to establish (through training and mentoring) a network of volunteer facilitators and caregivers in Namibia who are active in the field of trauma counseling and treatment, and so provide a place for people who are victims and survivors of trauma, where they can find an emotional and psychological refuge and then start on the path to healing.
