Healing Hands Network

Healing Hands Network is a small UK based charity dedicated to the relief of suffering caused by war and its aftermath. They have been working in Sarajevo in Bosnia since 1997, sending volunteer complementary therapists to treat people suffering from the physical and emotional after effects of the Balkan war.
Last year they started a project in the UK, in collaboration with Combat Stress, working with returning service personnel at their drop-in centres East Anglia, London and Liverpool. They are also working with SSAFA in Birmingham.
The drop-in centres are usually held fortnightly or monthly. Attendees have the opportunity to call in over the space of two or three hours to receive advice, information, support from other military charities such as the Royal British Legion and free treatments from volunteer therapists. Many of the veterans are suffering from mental trauma or PTSD and some also have physical conditions from their time in active service.
