UNOPS Visit to Mind-Body Groups

February 22, 2023

CMBM Country Director for Gaza, Jamil Atti, PhD and our committed local Faculty are doing amazing work, bringing evidence-based skills for self-care to the Gaza Strip. Here’s what the CMBM Gaza team has been up to lately.

“Under the Mental Health and Psycho-Social Support Intervention Provider for the House Reconstruction in Gaza Phase II Project, which is implemented in partnerships between CMBM & UNOPS. Ms. Gemma Marie – Project Manager and Mr. Khalil Dalloul – Senior Site Engineer, together with Dr.Jamil Abdel Atti – CMBM Director, conducted a field visit to Al-Amal Institute to witness the great success of the Mind-Body Groups in the project. During the field visit, influencing testimonies and heroic success stories were shared by project beneficiaries. It’s worth noting that those beneficiaries have lived the experience of full house destruction in the 2021 escalation on Gaza Strip, and have been through the trauma of losing family members as well. While UNOPS worked on the house reconstruction, CMBM worked on the self-construction of those survivors.”
