Hands at Work, partnering with Petra College, brought Walking with Wounded Children Training to desperate communities across South Africa. The training, developed by a team of counsellors and psychologists, equips those who care for children with tools to lead them on a path of healing from any emotional wounds or losses they may have experienced. The training teaches care workers how to develop an intense level of trust with the child, how to recognize signs of abuse, and the importance of allowing a child to tell her story in her own way in order to recover. The first course was held in Mpumalanga, facilitated by Hands at Work representatives and members from Petra College. Fifteen Careworkers from South Africa with servant hearts for children came together for 2 weeks to learn about bringing God’s healing to the children who need it the most.
