I don’t think you’ve met Ruba, an invaluable CRP community member and a testament to the Self-Care Program’s impact.

The other day, I asked Ruba if we could record a video  about her experience in the program, since she has been a member of the self-care group for a while now. Ruba lit up the moment she started telling us about the activities they do. Her words about the importance of self-care truly inspired me.  

Prioritizing self-care isn’t selfish–it’s essential! Her advice is a powerful reminder that caring for ourselves is the first step to caring for others. This is especially true when you struggle to cope with the practical and emotional challenges of displacement like Ruba and many others in our community.

I invite you to watch the video and get inspired by her story like I did.
