is an initiative created by the Fortunate Blessings Foundation in 2004 to specifically help children recover their innate ability to love life by providing facilitated, safe, joyful and respectful "PLAYshops" of 30-45 minutes with groups of children who have been impacted by a natural disaster.

On June 12th, the first Second Response trauma team departed the USA for Kathmandu, Nepal to conduct PLAYshops for children, their teachers and caregivers. In early July, a rotation takes place as members from the first team return to the USA and new, specialized team members arrive until mid July to teach self-regulation skills to parents and caregivers, and to enrich resiliency and local capacity. The current goal is to send a third team in October. Your help is needed to continue this work.

Hundreds of thousands of children face the prospect of a life with PTSD - but you can help prevent it. Traumatic stress can be alleviated - and now is the time we must act.

We've thoroughly updated and translated our resource, "Guide for Parents and Caregivers", into Nepali. It's the same handbook we made available during missions in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines.

When training adults to interact with children during PLAYshops, participants directly engage in an experiential session on our methodologies that employ body or somatic exercises to release repressed emotions. The learning objective is to introduce the phenomenology of trauma and PTS (Post Traumatic Stress) to participants through specific exercises designed to prevent PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
