Standing in Solidarity
Since the Beirut explosion, Red Oak has been supporting the most vulnerable women and girls in safe spaces in Karantina, Mar Mikhail and Khandak al Ghamik.
The support group brings a sense of belonging through understanding, which is achieved by sharing common experiences with other women going through some of the same conflicts or trauma. It helps those who feel alone and isolated and boosts self-esteem within the group. It instills hope by bringing women and girls together and by giving them the support they need from a group of therapists.
These sessions are implemented by Red Oak with funding from UK Aid and support from the International Rescue Committee and in cooperation with Khelkhal AUB.
