Presentation: Healing and Resilience of those Persecuted
When human rights defenders are threatened, we can learn the most from the people we serve. Learning courage and resilience from the most courageous and resilient people – from refugees who survived persecution and torture. Sharing the experience of working with people who suffered traumas, and sharing the experience of how it feels to be questioned and threatened by the authorities for supporting those who need the most support. A story of building successful strategies of survival.
