We are delighted that the Norwegian company BKK has decided to sponsor the Foundation’s Handbook for parents on how to support young children after disasters.
As there are very few practical tools available to address the need of small children aged 0-6 years of age following war and disasters, the Foundation thinks it is important to develop such a manual. There is much research to base good, practical advise to parents on following disasters, but it needs to be worked into a practical tool or handbook that parents other child caretakers can use to support children following large scale natural or man-made disasters.
The Children and War Foundation has previously supported the development of several manuals. By gathering world experts in a certain professional field and having them work together for a week to produce a concrete product (manual), we have been very successful in creating very practical manuals to help children and adolescents following war and disasters.
