Chances for a better future

Many children grow up in a daily life marked by violence; the images of war, abuse, persecution and loss of family are all too familiar.  What are not seen are the psychological wounds and deep emotional scars that remain even after physical injuries have healed.  Most of these traumatized children suffer depression, nightmares, loss of self-worth and often are the source of future aggression.  Our Children for Tomorrow therapists and doctors are specialized in therapeutic treatments to heal these invisible wounds. Giving these children a chance for a better future is the mission of our foundation.
