CHILD TRAUMA SEMINAR DAYS BEFORE TYPHOON HAIYAN DESTRUCTION PREPARES CHRISTIANS

CHILD TRAUMA CARE TRAINING IN THE PHILIPPINES

OperationSAFE & Philippine Children’s Ministries Network After a disaster, some perform rescue operations, others open shelters, deliver food, clear rubble and help rebuild. We train workers to provide psychosocial care for children who have been through trauma. This emotional and spiritual care is vital to allow children to restart their lives as children once again.

God orders things ahead of time, His timing is perfect, never late, never ahead. Two days ahead of Typhoon Yolanda we concluded a 4-day training on Operation Safe. We are ready to put our skills on board for children affected by the typhoon. Go servants of God! The time has come to action!

CHILD TRAUMA TEAMS TRAINED IN THREE PROVINCES IN THE PHILIPPINES

CRASH Japan Director Jonathan Wilson traveled in November to three islands in the Philippines to conduct OperationSAFE child trauma trainings for local churches and organizations. The trip expanded the successful work of the first year after Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan internationally) further on the island of Samar and to new areas in Leyte and Cebu.

OperationSAFE trains people from the local community in emotional first-aid for children. The intervention builds up the entire community by not only instilling trauma resiliency principles in children but also in youth, teachers and caregivers who will continue to be there for the children long after outside help has left.
