Staying physically active is such a simple, powerful way to improve our physical and mental health. Sadly, those who could benefit the most from daily exercise often face barriers that restrict access to such activities. This is especially true among displaced people who suffer from PTSD, depression, and other mental health illnesses.
Our materials are designed to encourage physical activity & healthy lifestyle habits in a contextualized, culturally sensitive manner – showing that exercise is for everyone.

EXERCISE IS FOR EVERYONE | Rohingya Version
There is a huge mental health crisis in the Rohingya refugee camps, especially among vulnerable Rohingya women.
Our Rohingya friends are here to share about why they like to exercise. It doesn’t matter where you live or how old you are, exercise is beneficial for everyone.
