African PTSD Relief
In the past 20 years, 18 African nations have been ravaged by war. It is estimated that up to 100 million Africans have been victims of war, violence, sexual abuse or natural disasters or witnessed horrific acts of terror and now suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).   Two recent peer reviewed studies, published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress demonstrate that the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique can help relieve PTSD symptoms in African refugees.   Over the next year, African PTSD Relief plans to provide the TM technique to 5,00010,000 Africans suffering from or at risk of PTSD and rapidly scale up over the subsequent years.   -- See
