Because from time to time we all have feelings of self-doubt or are overwhelmed by the circumstances in which we find ourselves.

Humanitarian workers face unique challenges. Being far away from home, working under demanding conditions and being exposed to the deep suffering of others can be very stressful.

Sometimes, feelings of loneliness, stress, burnout or exhaustion start to interfere with life and with our relationships. At these times, it can be helpful to get support from a licensed and experienced counselor to get a fresh and liberating perspective and bring your life back into balance.

‘Wonderful to speak with people who care and understand.  Thank you!’

Faith (Burundi)

‘I’m really happy I made the call and spoke with a member of the team. I don’t know why I waited so long. Speaking with someone in this way was like opening a window to let in the light and fresh air. I feel much better!’

G.S. (South Sudan)

‘Very nice connection! Very constructive conversation and very practical.  These things are not always easy to speak about.  Great to know there is a service that makes it possible.’
