Psychological Rehabilitation

Due to the trauma that they have been through, many orphaned children are in need for psychological rehabilitation to overcome the harsh circumstances they have faced.

Building on the positive experience of the current psychological rehabilitation centre at Al-Ayn (Iraq)’s headquarters,  there are several similar centres currently under construction throughout Iraq. These form part of the Luminous Stars Centres, which combine vocational training centres, and psychological rehabilitation centres.

The facilities in these centres will enable the children to play in designated areas, whilst being monitored to diagnose cases which need attention. The children then attend specialist sessions with therapists to help them with treatment.

The first Luminous Stars Centre, in Al-Kadhimiyya, is due to be opened soon. There are other similar centres being built in Al-Basrah, Al-Diwaniya, and Al-Heera. More centres are planned in other provinces.
