Every month, six-year-old Shams and her mother visit their local Al-Ayn (Iraq) branch.
While Shams’ mother is busy at the collection point, Shams is encouraged to join Al-Ayn’s play centre. We are able to check in on Shams as she plays, and her mother can privately communicate to us any issues or requests.
“I like playing with dolls, drawing with my sister, and drinking milk,” Shams tells us. “But my favourite thing to do is visit Al-Ayn’s play centre with my mum!”
At Al-Ayn, we recognise how important play is for a child’s emotional and cognitive health and development. This is especially true for children across Iraq, where instability can interfere in this important early childhood development stage.
Incorporating play into our therapy sessions and broader activities is one of the most effective ways we can build resilience in a child’s life. We love to see the progress that Shams and other orphaned children make as we continue supporting their needs.
Every orphaned child deserves to play, explore, and have fun. They deserve respite. And they deserve the chance to overcome their difficult past experiences and build a brighter future.
