THE BAREFOOT APPROACH TO COMMUNITY TRAUMA

How we do the work is as important as what we do. We accompany communities in their recovery as they take control of their healthcare.

Shooting Response

Disaster

Underserved Groups facing disaster, trauma, violence, and climate change confront a challenging road ahead as global disparities increase.

Relief

Barefoot Clinics offer TRAUMA-informed care as stress management support for survivors and first responders. We mobilize disaster response by setting up group based acupuncture.

Partnership

We walk with local leaders and humanitarian aid projects as they learn how to offer acupuncture as a support to their culture and economy. We train their community health workers on how to offer healthcare on their own feet.

Community

As we step back, we teach community health workers how to step forward and offer their own trainings. Each partnership allows us to identify social strengths, to build on local capacities, and to support their initiatives for long term recovery.

    SUPPORTING COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS

    I used to just be a housewife. But now I am a health promoter. Now I can learn other things to improve on myself. Now I take time for myself, to love myself, so I can be there for anyone who needs my help”
