War, Afghanistan (February 2002-June 2006)

Reaching out to war victims

Afghanistan (February 2002 - June 2006)

The Art of Living, through its trauma relief workshops, brought relief and peace to war victims, mine victims, women, children and others traumatized by over two decades of war and strife. Through the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crimes, Afghan counsellors, doctors, nurses and administrators took the Art of Living Breath-Water-Sound programmes. UNIFEM, Ministry of Public Health and the Mental Health Dept. organised several courses for their staff and trauma affected villagers with very positive results.
