Sri Lanka Ministry

Our work in Sri Lanka began when Simon was invited to teach a course on suffering and persecution at a conference there in February 2019.  He was supposed to still be in country on Easter Sunday, but returned earlier for another appointment. As we know, the Easter Sunday bombings were some of the darkest days for the people in Sri Lanka and one of the most devastating terrorest attacks. 

 

The people of Sri Lanka have endured heartbreaking tragedies, with a twenty year civil war, ending in 2009, two tsunami's, ongoing flooding and a terrorist attack. There is a high degree of compounded trauma across the country. 

On Easter Monday Simon and Allison sprung into action, and began working with churches and NGO's in the country, by initiating a trauma care initiative. They are coordinating a strategy to help the victims of the bombings and many other people who have been traumatised through tragedy and war. One of the greatest needs for people in crisis, is care and support to cope with the trauma of such events and to have access to training for ongoing hope and courage in the oven of progressive pressure. See below to find out more.

Sri Lanka Trauma Care

Trauma Care Plan

Through research and on the ground relationships we are providing opportunities for organisations and churches seeking to understand the impact of trauma in Sri Lanka and in other countries where tragedy or persecution has occurred. 

 

Helping school, university and ministry students and  churches gain experience in a range of approaches in assessing levels of trauma  across a nation. Equipping them with the tools to identify and help traumatised people learn how to build  relationships and work toward  reconciliation with and between effected people.
