Restlessness, irritability, and depression are common issues refugees face. Throw in a pandemic and we’ve got a mental health crisis at our hands.
That’s why our team created the first ever Rohingya coloring book. Coloring is a therapeutic activity that has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and aid in the trauma healing process.
Our Rohingya friends need this now more than ever.
