Trauma Healing after Nepalese Earthquake


Karuna Han

After the earthquake in Nepal, Perspectivity’s Han Verhoeven decided to put her Capacitar training into practice. She offered a 4-day trauma-healing training to Karuna Nepal. Karuna works on the prevention of disabilities among children and improved quality of life for children with disabilities. Twenty participants in teams of two shared the Capacitar practices with adolescents with multiple disability and their parents.

I was touched by one child in particular. This child had Down syndrome and practiced the holds with his mother. He and his parents were both proud and moved that he could be such a contribution.
