EMERGENCY CALL FOR LEBANON
Following the Beirut blast on August 4th 2020, we launched Nafas, “breath” in Arabic, a safe space offering art therapy sessions to children and adults affected by the explosion.
The centre is a collaboration with two local NGOs Beit El Baraka and Astharté.
The Art Therapy Centre NAFAS in Beirut is composed with a team of certified therapists providing Art therapy. The centre’s first objectives were to urgently respond to the psychological consequences of trauma caused by stress, anxiety and prevent potential Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues. Our current objectives are sustainable practices using various art-therapy forms.
For the Art is a Swiss NGO that has been active since 2015 in Lebanon & Switzerland.
For the past 5 years, For the Art has been helping children and teenagers who suffer from trauma
(e.g. war trauma, domestic violence, refugees etc...) through Art Therapy.
