Because of COVID 19, Voces’ team of volunteer expressive arts therapists, practitioners and educators have not been to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico to work with refugees since March 2020. But as the pandemic dies down, we will be returning to directly working with refugees in the region in May 2023. In the meantime, we continue to fundraise for refugees and asylum seekers and in 2022 we offered an ongoing online training in expressive arts therapies to educators teaching at the shelters in Ciudad Juarez. We also supplied classrooms with art materials and instruments to further support teachers in integrating expressive arts therapies into their curriculum with both adolescents and children. In 2020 and 2021 we offered trainings in expressive arts therapies to practitioners who are part of Desarrollo Integral de la Familia (DIF), the equivalent of the National Association for the Protection of Children. In addition we have been offering supervision to clinicians and counseling support to service providers who are supporting the refugees around the clock. As always, your donations are greatly appreciated.
