* Helping children cope after violence in Gaza
* 시간 02분 43초

Two weeks after renewed fighting brought chaos and destruction to Jabalia, located on the North end of Gaza, these damaged homes, schools and storefronts remain as powerful reminders to children of the latest episode of violence they had to witness.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Tahreer Abed Rabbo, 12 years old:
“I was horrified and I was praying to God to protect us from what happened from the siege”.

The humanitarian situation had already been deteriorating since the near total blockade of the Gaza Strip in June 2007. But, the recent military operation worsened conditions, leaving essential services, like water and sanitation, close to breakdown and placing even more strain on the already tight education and medical services.

Countless children were affected by the violence. Parents and caregivers soon saw the serious side affects witnessing aggression can have as children began to commonly exhibit depression, anger and hyperactivity, fear of being alone and nightmares.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Inas Al Khatib, Project Coordinator, Palestinian Centre for Democracy and Conflict Resolution (PCDCR):
“Children witnessed the killing and injuring of people, they saw the military invading homes and detaining fathers or even children less than 18 years of age, all of these factors led to problems amongst children. We are now trying to help children overcome their behavioural problems and to adapt to the situation.”

At the Muntada al Saleh centre, UNICEF, in partnership with the Palestinian Centre for Democracy and Conflict Resolution, are working to help distraught children. The children take part in group counselling sessions to share their emotions and gain tools to cope with violence 

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Tahreer Abed Rabbo, 12 years old:
“I learnt not to show my little brother that I am scared, but to calm him down and assure him that they will not harm us, and they will get out from here. We learnt to be confident, not to be scared and to keep away from windows.”

The program, made possible by funds from ECHO, also provides group individual counselling sessions for children in need of advanced care. Critical interventions for children searching desperately in need of normalcy.
