EMBRACING ORPHANS was established in Bergen in 2009. The aim was to help children cope after wars and natural disasters through developing evidence-based methods.

Thanks to donations from individuals, companies or governments the Children and War Foundation is able to help Embracing orphans and disasters.

Embracing orphans is a non-profit organisation.

From the use of our manual in Jamaica, we know that it can reduce distress in children. We continue to improve and train people in our measures, train more people in the manual, support research projects and publish useful tools on our website. We also continue to develop new methods, as well as update existing ones. Based on feedback from organisations using our Teaching Recovery Techniques manual we now update it for better use with unaccompanied minors coming to Usa. We welcome donations to undertake research projects as well as to the Foundation’s general funds. We will distribute it where we think it will give the best results and help most children, whether that is a developing a new manual, dedicated project or  workshops.
