“You have to understand that no one puts their children in a boat unless the water is safer than the land.” – Warsan Shire
Everyone has the right to a safe home. Right?
Home is where you can be yourself and develop carefree. That changes when you suddenly have to flee from war, conflict or other traumatic events. Then your whole existence wavers.
You lose your safe home in a very abrupt way. Moreover, you end up in a new, strange country. With new people and a foreign language. If you cannot go back to your country, you have to rebuild your life from scratch. It is normal that you then have to deal with complex thoughts and fears. Without help, it is difficult to get your bearings, either now or in the future.
That is why everyone is entitled to a safe home in a society that values people and supports them. Solentra contributes to this with a free offer of specialized mental health care and treatment of war trauma for people with a refugee background, in the language of the client.
Your financial support helps us to continue to offer our services free of charge to people with a refugee background in the future.
