My job is to help affected people by the conflict - children, adolescents and older people. I work with the psycho-social support team.

We play with the children and teach them how to play as a team together because children in these situations lose their trust, and their sense of privacy also.

We also offer psychological support and health education to the affected families. We do this regardless of their religious affiliation and nationalities, because the first spirit of our work is for the sake of  humanity.
