Exercise and Flexibility Programme

A study by Mavi Kalem in 2019 stated that 85% of Syrian children are estimated to suffer long-term effects as a result of the war, which often manifests as aggression and/or social isolation.

Within our Exercise and Flexibility Programme we provide gentle exercise support for children with physical disabilities, conducted by Mohammad and Melek who are consultant physiotherapists. Here the children develop their motor skills, make new friends, improve their social skills and learn to be more comfortable in their bodies. We teach parents physiotherapeutic exercises that they are able to practice at home. Through our prosthetics programme we have provided 90 children with prosthetics, wheelchairs and other assistive devices, but with your help we could help more children.

We organise yoga sessions for children and women, which helps increase muscle strength, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall health and wellbeing.
