In response to the Beirut blast that occurred on August 4, 2020, Mentor Arabia, in collaboration with Care About the Children Foundation (CATCH), developed ‘R.E.A.D.Y To Overcome’, a psychosocial support (PSS) program targeting children aged 7-11 years old. The program aims at building a Resilient, Empathic, Aware, and Dynamic Young generation that is able to overcome stressful events by learning to express themselves and to cope with their emotions in a healthy way. The adapted program consists of 5 focused psychosocial support sessions and is complemented with 5 group art therapy sessions. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the program kicked off on March 22, 2021 and was delivered virtually over Zoom sessions. The program reached 415 children and 187 parents.
