Refugee Trauma Initiative is now called Amna
Nurturing joy& belonging
Amna specialises in supporting the psychosocial wellbeing of refugees and other displaced communities.
We help communities manage the insecurity, stress, and trauma that comes from conflict and forced displacement.
What it’s like to be a war refugee
Living under the constant threat of violence has a lasting effect – even after you escape from danger, says Founder of Amna Zarlasht Halaimzai.
Support for Ukrainian refugees
Amna is responding to the emergency in Ukraine through three programmes of support for organisations supporting refugees and those who are internally displaced.
In six years, Amna has reached more than 10,000 people across Greece through trauma-sensitive and identity-informed psychosocial support.
Amna provides psychosocial support to break the cycle of intergenerational trauma.
Respect, Connection, Understanding & Curiosity
Asylum seekers and refugees are more likely to suffer from mental health challenges, even after they arrive at a place of relative safety.
Amna provides refugee communities with safe spaces where they can heal from the effects of conflict, war and displacement by reconnecting with others and becoming part of a community.
By supporting individuals, organisations and refugee communities to run safe spaces for restorative group activities, we help people regain their resilience and rediscover feelings of joy and belonging.
Refugee Trauma Initiative is now Amna
We are pleased to announce that Refugee Trauma Initiative is now Amna Refugee Healing Network.
