New community garden at the SEED trauma centre, Bardarash camp

Our community garden at the SEED Foundation trauma centre in Bardarash camp is finished! And the garden is already being used. Isn’t it wonderful to see the children singing? It is literally music to our ears.

The community garden is a space for SEED centre clients and Bardarash residents to enjoy every day.

The garden was designed by our very own Hamid Abdullah, who also project managed our talented team of local tradespeople on the build.

The SEED Foundation in Kurdistan does important work helping people to heal from trauma, cope with displacement, and start to rebuild their future. The organisation provides a range of mental health and psychosocial support services, and takes a holistic care approach – gardening and being in nature can play a significant role in the healing process.

Thanks for your support

We couldn’t have created this space without you! The garden was made possible thanks to your generous donations. Massive thanks to each and every one of you who has made a donation to support our work – you have played a part in creating this beautiful space for the thousands of displaced people living in Bardarash camp.
