RehanaPakistanPhotoResizedRehana Webster recently returned from Pakistan where she presented several TBT (Trauma Buster Technique) workshops during the month of May, 2013. These were very successful and well received. In addition, spent considerable time working with the residents of a Women’s shelter in Sukkur, Darulaman. The women and their children are forced to live indefinitely confined to a small living space because they have been accused of adultery (most falsely accused). There only option is to reside in this Women’s shelter or they risk being killed. As one can imagine, the stress and symptoms relating to post-traumatic stress disorder are extremely high. Rehana worked with about 50 women who were all suffering from post-traumatic stress symptoms (PTSD) and achieved amazing results. After the TBT sessions, the women emerged from their fearful state. Most were able to relax and sleep after a very long time. Going forward, the women can use TBT/EFT to help themselves and each other calm down and continue to deal with any residual stress related symptoms. Because these women are not able to earn a living and the shelter is very poorly funded, they often do not have adequate food supplies. As a result, Rehana led an effort to create a large vegetable garden which the women and their children can tend. The vegetables will provide additional food for the residents as well as give them something to focus on. Thanks to all those who contributed funds, seeds, fertilizer, etc. to bring this to fruition. Mr. Makhdoom Faiq Hussain, the High Court Judge has taken over managing the project and created a facebook page so all the doners can see how their money is being spent.

Many thanks to all the doners and Mr Makhdoom and Mr. Qudoos Memon for their hands-on involvement with the project.

Lastly, many thanks to all those donors who made it possible for Rehana to do this great work. Please know that every dollar raised was used in direct support of this effort. Together, we can and do make a difference in the world.
