Located on the border with Syria in the Bekka valley, is our Sam’s House little friendly space project.
We have 60 Syrian refugee children aged 2.5 – 5 years who attend this pre – primary education project. The children’s lives have been torn apart by the war in Syria, many have seen their loved ones killed in front of them. When traumatic events like these occur arrestment of healthy development can take place.
Sam’s House LFS offers these children themed sessions that have been designed to offer them psycho-social support. These sessions can involve singing, movement, drama and art activities, as well as having free play where they can simply be themselves.
Through play a child can learn to explore, express, unlock and process their trauma safely to resume their development into healthy adulthood.
