PLAYING IS HEALING - A CONTAINER PROJECT
BEING A GUEST AT YAZIDI PEOPLE
After the last genocide of the Yazidi people by the IS hundreds of families that fled SHINGAL still live in the village of XHANKE. Their homes are tents. We can't even imagine the things they experienced....
We are strongly convinced, that playing has a therapeutic effect to children and it's even possible to overcome trauma with the help of play.
After having built a playground in a shipping container in Lüneburg, with students at minus ten degrees we send this "parcel" to IRAQ.
A small Team of four travels there to set the container up together with the kids of the orphanage "our bridge".
We collaborated with the department of trauma pedagogy of FWE (Friends of Waldorfpedagogy). They are working in this area since 2015.
