TRAUMA HEALING PROGRAM FOR REFUGEE KIDS
In 2018, we worked with the Bible Society in Lebanon to produce a series of watercolour illustrations for a social outreach program that aims to help child refugees heal from the trauma they experienced during the Syrian Civil War.
The program was designed to guide children through the different phases of grief and our brief was to illustrate the stories written, based on the children’s real experiences.
Given the sensitive nature of the topics tackled in this program, our illustrations used metaphor and abstraction to communicate a thought-provoking story and create a deep emotional connection with the audience.
The above are illustrations for the second part of the trauma healing program, this time aimed for teenagers and young adults dealing with harsh socio-economic problems in the middle-east. The pieces aim to not only show the struggle and darkness in these young people’s lives but to also uncover the ray of hope that is always there.
