Mercy Centers are Comforting Traumatized Children

Nine-year-old Masoom fled her village with her family three weeks ago. They went to Surkh Dheri and are staying in a local school with other displaced families.

Since then, Masoom has been withdrawn and anxious, traumatized by the conflict and her experiences.

Masoom is one of the children attending Islamic Relief’s Mercy Center.

Here, the children have safe places to play and learn and children such as Masoom are being given psychosocial support by psychologists to help them overcome trauma.

For more information read Islamic Relief's Response in Pakistan.


  1. As Salaamu Alaikum,
    This blog would look much nicer if the banner was white and green instead of black. Right now it looks like a funeral blog.

    Thanks for the feedback. We actually have a team going to Pakistan to document the Mercy Center project. So inshaAllah we'll have brighter pictures from the field soon.
