Around the world there are 41 million forcibly displaced children. Unless treated, their trauma will affect their lives for years to come.


Reframing Trauma

Finding a new narrative after a traumatic event can change the trajectory of a child’s life forever. But this reframing works best when the memory is still fresh – ideally within the first few weeks/months after the event.

Humanity Crew is a mental health aid organization preventing trauma with displaced children and their families.


Amplify the Vision

Join us in imagining a world where victims of humanitarian crises receive emergency mental health support.


“I felt so much relief knowing there’s someone beside me, who will listen to me and talk to me. We need to overcome our sadness and stand strong to help each other for a better life."

Where the dream began


In 2015, Advocate Maria Jammal and Dr. Essam Daod stood on the shore of Lesvos Island. Along with Psychologist Mohammad Mansor and other volunteers, they waited for thousands of Syrian refugees to arrive in lifeboats.

What started as a medical mission quickly shifted to providing emergency mental health first aid for people experiencing unspeakable trauma. Humanity Crew was founded.
