Special 36-hour Matching Fund Campaign to deploy trauma team to Nepal
7 am Tuesday, May 5 until

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 in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines.
In the weeks ahead, we must get our team members on the ground in Nepal where they can make a difference, delivering joy and hope to survivors.
Your help is needed for us to be effective!
Please donate between
