“The body heals but the soul remains broken. Piecing the parts together starts with us.” We are a group of psychiatrist, psychologists and mental health professionals from the Galilee who traveled to Lesbos in November 2015 in response to the Syrian crisis and have been working with refugees ever since. Following our trip we established an organization dedicated to the psychosocial support of refugees. Coming from similar social and cultural backgrounds as the refugees, and communicating in the same language, Arabic, we were in a unique position to provide in-depth and sustained support. Our professionals come with substantial experience and background in treating victims of trauma and conflict.
