This project addressed the psycho-social and developmental needs of children exposed to trauma during the war and the recent fighting in Nahr Al Bared Camp between Fateh Al Islam and the Lebanese army. Besides the growing evidence of post traumatic stress in children as a result of recent hostilities, there has also been a growing concern amongst parents and community groups that religious parties are also offering art therapy classes as a way of attracting these vulnerable youth. This project would be a positive approach to providing them with an alternative safe and healthy community environment in which they can heal.
