Modern miracle #PoweredByJNF: Silenced by fear, a boy speaks again
Avinoam, a young boy in one of Green Horizons' northern groups, stopped talking during the summer of 2006. A katyusha rocket fired from Lebanon fell next to his house and since then, he had stopped communicating with words. His family did all they could do to help. They took him to doctors and psychologists, but Avinoam couldn't overcome his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Avinoam (not his real name) couldn't express his feelings for almost six years. Two years ago, at the beginning of Hanukkah during Green Horizons camp to the Negev, Avinoam surprised everyone when he said "shalom" to his guide. By the end of that day he was like a waterfall of words that had been blacked out for six years. Avinoam told his guide and his parents, "I felt protected and secure with my Green Horizons group, so that was the natural place to try talking again."
Help Green Horizons make more miracles.
