We spent two days doing Art Therapy with the children at The Refuge – a Children’s Home we support in a Refugee Camp in Thailand. These kids have come out of horrific situations in Burma – fleeing for their lives from the SDPC (Burmese military) and hiding in the jungle. They came to the refugee camp with hopes of a safe place to stay, and an opportunity to go to school. Many of them have family still inside Burma.
But for today, the kids were just kids…. drawing, painting, and being creative.
Art Therapy is a way for children who have been through traumatic experiences to process and express their emotions in a healthy, non-violent way. With brushes and colored pencils in hand, these kids painted pictures of their painful past, their present, and the future they dream of.
