Play as Therapy: Bringing Smiles to Children in Need

For a child, play is fun, but it can also be therapeutic – especially for children who have experienced conflict, disaster, or displacement.

Madi, a teenager from Burkina Faso, was injured during conflict in his hometown. With permanent scars from his injuries, he withdrew from his friends and didn’t participate in activities outside of his home.

Since the opening of the UNICEF child friendly space, Madi has participated in activities and has benefited from play and psychosocial care.

Madi says: “I love to participate with the activities and to play football. My dream is to become a teacher.”

Gifts, such as footballs, allow children and young people to engage with others and heal from their experiences. With this Inspired Gift, you can help make a child smile as they continue to heal, learn, and have fun.
