AL HADAF

Al Hadaf for Training serves Iraqi refugees who fled ISIS. The hundreds of families that have gone through their care have received trauma counselling and therapy. Al Hadaf works to restore these families and prepare them to build new lives. Most of the families are registered as refugees with the United Nations and have applied to immigrate to other countries. So Al Hadaf's role is invaluable. Refugees can spend years in a citizen-less status, unable to work and dependent on handouts. Al Hadaf provides counselling to deal with past traumas, support as refugees waiting for sponsorship, and training so that they contribute to their new home. This training includes access to English classes or tutors, basic education, and supplementary educational and creative activities. They also run sewing and makeup courses every semester. The program focuses on refugee empowerment, which includes teaching basic life skills in order to ensure a healthy and long life. Al Hadaf is all about sustainability. Their research has found that programming specifically aimed towards reducing the high levels of PTSD and depression among refugees improves all other aspects of their lives. Better mental health affects one’s language learning and conflict resolution abilities, relationships, economic situations, and physical health.
