“The trauma healing training program is promoting stabilization processes and social healing in Mogadishu.”
- Mayor of Mogadishu
800 trained trauma healers will support 38,400 Somalis across Mogadishu
TIS and the Benadir Administration have trained 800 Somalis in trauma healing and social reconciliation in Mogadishu.
Trauma healing is critical for residents of Mogadishu who are emerging from 21 years of civil conflict. Khadija Isse, one of the trauma healing trainers, remarked, “When you see the horrendous effects on buildings, roads and trees in Mogadishu, it is unbearable. But these are small complaints compared to the effects war has had on people’s minds. Once trauma healing is done, people can start to heal. When you build people, the people will rebuild the country.”
