Trauma Relief Support Project Israel
SUPPORT FOR UKRAINIANS IN UKRAINE AND ELSEWHERE
Solidarity in Times of War - Ukraine
The current War in Israel/Palestine is awakening existential fear, acute grief, despair and trauma. Unspeakable atrocities have left many in a state of deep shock, with many families directly impacted and in immediate need of trauma first aid.
As part of our Global Trauma Relief Project, the Pocket Project is expanding our work to provide a systemic psychosocial response to the profound collective traumatization currently afflicting Palestinians and Israelis.
However, recognizing the levels of pain and trauma and unique needs of both communities, the Pocket Project will prepare separate spaces for Israelis and Palestinians. Our mission is to create a safe, supportive, and healing space for all those affected by trauma, regardless of their background or nationality.
The intervention that we propose is a multi-sector, interdisciplinary approach, spreading acute psychosocial support and trauma-informed approaches to the population, and then also to communities, the healthcare system, educational institutions and government.
We aim to prevent a continuing spiral that might take generations to heal by bringing psychosocial support to the situation now. Our teams of therapists offer 1:1 and group sessions with the goal of resourcing individuals and cultivating social stability. We also offer supervision calls and training for therapists and health workers. Through trauma-informed leadership training and consultancy, we support the adaptation and spread of trauma-informed practices and policies, so that communities, organizations, healthcare, education and government can unfold their capacity for trauma-informed care.
The Trauma Relief Support Project is run through donations and volunteer efforts. If you are able to support, please donate here.
Our hearts go out to you and your loved ones. Please help us to understand your needs and wishes as we shape our offerings. *Your data will be anonymous and treated with utmost respect.

A healing impulse for Ukraine - our collective impact
Every time trauma is healed, we restore a part of our past and make possible a brighter future for ourselves and succeeding generations. We transform separation, othering, and scarcity into relation, interdependence, and abundance.

How to support the trauma relief project:
Would you like to make a donation to support this initiative? The Pocket Project, a non-profit organization, relies on financial contributions to realize Social Impact Projects such as this vital project in Ukraine. We fundraise resources that allow us to contribute to the healing of collective trauma and to reduce its disruptive effects on our global culture. Every donor is an active participant in the realisation of these aims. Your donation will be directly supporting the Ukrainian people who are working with us. We witness this transformation through the eyes of our participants and expert partners, including Oksana, a valued member of our team. This is what she has to say:
“Every time trauma is healed, we restore a part of our past and make possible a brighter future for ourselves and succeeding generations. We transform separation, othering, and scarcity into relation, interdependence, and abundance.”

Ukraine SUpport Project
We are building a global healing impulse that directs its efforts wherever the need is strong. In 2020, through our Covid Aid Project, we directed our volunteer effort to offer 147 calls in English, German, and Spanish, serving 2515 Participants. Since 2022, we have directed our capacity to support Ukrainians and those supporting Ukrainian refugees.
On February 24th, 2022, the citizens of Ukraine were jolted awake by the loud blasts of bombs and missiles. Unfortunately, the war seems to have no end in sight. A rapid cumulative display of crises is changing all of our lives. The Climate Crisis and Corona, now compounded by the War in Ukraine, is re-awakening hidden trauma layers and leading to increased stress, anxiety, and polarization. If we can anchor ourselves and help ground others, we become more able to stay present and respond appropriately to each situation. So far, we are engaging in four subprojects to bring support to Ukrainians.
