Drawing Life  

With help from a student aide for an indigenous ministry in Jordan, a young refugee girl from Iraq expresses repressed feelings about atrocities by Islamic State terrorists. The director of the church school offering education to refugee children noted that a 7-year-old Iraqi girl had difficulty concentrating, a common symptom of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Also speech-delayed, she needed a student aide to help her adjust after the ordeal of escaping Iraq with her mother and brother. The family had spent a year sleeping on the streets and in parking garages. "Since starting at the church school, she is a lot happier," the director said. "In the classroom she is happy to participate with the other students. Having a student aide/teaching assistant enables her to participate without distracting the rest of the class." The ministry needs eight aides for eight traumatized children at a cost of $1,500 per month for all eight assistants – also refugees who benefit from the employment.
