I recently traveled to Northern Uganda and set up an art therapy service in an orphanage for former child soldiers and young people affected by conflict and trauma.

I came back a week ago and I am hoping to return in a few months to carry on with the work. Below is the short movie I made while I was there; the second half focuses on art therapy with war orphans.
