Trauma Healing Network
By Fatima Mwange
The Trauma Healing Network (THN) launched in September 2012 as a Bible-engagement project of the Bible Society of Namibia. People in Namibia often do not receive effective trauma help because support services are not readily available or affordable for everyone. The most important goal of THN is to cultivate communities which are not only able to handle their own trauma effectively, but can also form a mutual support base. THN’s team of facilitators in Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Malawi aim to bring healing to traumatized people and equip them with skills and knowledge in dealing with trauma.
Trauma interrupts our ability to function in our daily lives and disconnects us from engaging in deep personal relationships. THN’s Programme Coordinator, Fatima Mwange says, “Our work is life-saving because we target root causes of trauma that are often contributors to social, spiritual, and personal issues. We share information on trauma and the new possibilities offered by biblical hope and healing with schools, churches, organizations, and workplaces.”
