Iraqi children, who have left everything behind in Mosul, play football on street in a displacement camp where NRC provides psychosocial support which helps children adapt to their new surroundings and cope with traumatic events they may have experienced. Through our Better Learning Program (BLP), we teach children deep breathing and stretching techniques that reduce stress and help improve focus. BLP also uses art as a way for children to process what they have experienced.
