About The Caring Family Foundation
On August 4, 2020, a deadly explosion at the port of Beirut killed nearly 200 individuals, injured thousands more, and damaged the capital. Since our launch in 2016, ART OF HOPE has been a vocal advocate & support provider for the Mental Health, trauma-relief & psychosocial needs of war-torn refugees in Lebanon. But TODAY, LEBANON - the host country to +2M refugees - is devastated with a a free-falling economy, COVID-19, and the aftermath of one of the deadliest explosions in human history.
That's why, hand in hand with our local and grassroots partners on the ground, we have focused some of our resources toward emergency & long-term support for the victims of the Beirut blasts.
In partnership with another one of our local partners, One Pulse and in accordance with all Covid safety restrictions, Art Of Hope will be sponsoring a 3 - month - long trauma-relief, Art Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program for a group of +60 teenagers affected by the Beirut blasts. The sessions also include workshops to boost the teen's confidence, self-esteem, and mindfulness amidst one of the most challenging times in Lebanon.
The Caring Family Foundation provides support to domestic violence survivors which affects 1 in 4 women in the UK. Abused women can feel conflicting feelings such as fear, anger, shame, resentment, sadness & powerlessness. Living with an abusive partner leaves a lasting impact and invisible wounds that require proper mental healthcare. In partnership with Art Of Hope, our teams are proudly providing 3 months of psychosocial support to the vulnerable refugee community in Lebanon.
