Why is Now the Time We Start Caring
By Srishti Kapoor
We are experiencing a world crisis of huge dimensions at the moment. The virus has taken over our lives and all of us are going through negative emotions of panic, depression, stress, loneliness, fear, anxiety, and despair. This could be the first time we as a global community understand each other and relate more than ever before. What we don’t know is many women are going through these emotions and fighting to live every day. Research has shown that women are the first victims of armed conflict, violence, and wars. There are a few charitable organisations which help women to get their life back to normal. Let’s take a look at the efforts of the Intisar Foundation which is the first charity organisation in the Middle East that provides psychological support to Arabic women affected by the trauma of war. They do this through the therapeutic approach of Drama Therapy, which uses dance, movement, and acting to release tension and heal trauma.
