    Case study: Helping children overcome the trauma of war

    “My wish is to see all my children getting [an] education. Thank you for giving me hope [this] might be true one day." Mahdi’s mum, in Jordan   

    Mahdi’s family arrived in Jordan after fleeing their home in Syria in 2013 due to the conflict. When Mahdi started school, he was still traumatised from his experiences, and he struggled to fit in. He had also been diagnosed with autism but there was no support system in place at his school.  

    Mahdi’s mum turned to a nearby CAFOD-funded project where she explained Mahdi’s situation. Soon after, Mahdi enrolled in the school, where he received the support he needed and started to make friends.
