We have received an invitation by the Kenya Psychological Association to deliver a talk on the International Trauma-Conference with the title: "Traumatic Stress: A Threat to Health, Peace and Development in Africa". We wish to explain our innovative model for the training of Trauma-Assistants to the 500 conference guests which will be assembled. This constitutes a unique opportunity to multiply the effect of this approach and therefore touch on the lives of many people in need for better access to psychosocial services to alleviate trauma.Until end of July 2015 we may confirm our participation and urge you to make your contribution to this cause before this date.
Our delegate Matthias Behrends took the job voluntarily and receives no payment for the intense five-day journey and conference participation. Donations will exclusively cover the following cost:Flight: approx. €950, Transfers: €150, Visa: €50Conference fee: €300, accomodation: €225, food: €175Printing cost: €20
This gives a total amount of €1,895 we need to raise to make this happen. Please help us by doanting and sharing this cause!
