A young child, about 8 years old, got one-on-one mental health and occupational therapy in a project funded by donors. She had been traumatized by an event where her older brother had been arrested and detained by occupation forces in the middle of the night, leaving her withdrawn and uncommunicative. She would not speak or engage with anyone, and seemed to have lost all that she had learned at school. With qualified specialized care, including speech therapy and emotional support, she came out of her shell and started speaking again. She is still getting help from this project, eager to participate and learn. Once scared and silent, she is a flourishing child ready to move on. She is only one of some 350 kids helped this past year--children learning and thriving in well-designed projects that reach the neediest children in some of the most stressful conditions anywhere.
