We are glad to share with you the news that in February 2014 our team was joined by a new member – a professional psychiatrist and psychologist. In recent years we have had many cases where we needed to appeal to hospital mental health specialists to help girls in our rehabilitation program. Working with victims of human trafficking and violence, we have seen how their deep trauma has caused mental disorders. Also we noticed an alarming tendency towards a growing number of young people with deep psychological problems and mental disorders.

Christmas is considered a light and heartwarming holiday for good reason. The Bible says that Light came to the world. St. Irenaeus explains this so: “Christ came to the earth and became like us, that we to become like Him… a little better, and lighter and purer...”

So in December the Beginning of Life team, with the support of our partners and volunteer groups, brought again a little light to those who are deprived of the warmth of love, and feel thrown aside and forgotten.

 

Escape 2. Is possible to be born twice?

Created on 01 April 2014

Literally – no! It is impossible to become again a small embryo, to enter the womb of a mother again to be born. But the concepts of ‘rebirth’ or ‘revival’ are used quite widely, for example by Christians as an explanation of what happens to the person who has believed in God. This concept was used also in history, calling a whole era the ‘Renaissance’, that is – revival. From XIV to the XVI century, Europe endured the whole wave of ‘new, revived’ arts. The same words are used by religious organizations, political parties, social movements - those who want to cast something ‘old’ in a ‘new’ light.

From the moment the Psychological Art Studio opened at BOL there hasn’t been a single day when people haven’t come. We believe that God can heal the hearts of people through Art and the process of creation. We would like to share with you just several of many amazing testimonies that people have shared with us once they have become regulars at PAS. Each of them came to us from different situations, and different times, and with various problems. What unites all of them is a desire to find a way out, to find peace and healing for their hearts…

Dina was born and raised in a very poor family. After her parents died 11 years ago, she went to live with her two brothers. However, all that she had seen in her parents’ house was  humiliation and pressure. Due to the constant pressure from the brothers as well as very poor living conditions, the girl was forced to leave the family home. She had nowhere to go so she agreed to cohabit with a man from her village. This man was regularly subjecting her to violence and forcing her to consume alcohol. More than that, he started to force Dina to have sex with other men. All this time Dina kept silent.
