It is only May and our foundation’s work is already in full swing, reaching out and helping in many countries and varying fields.
In March, the UK Foundation’s Uganda PTSD study with lead researcher, Dr. Howard Robson, was published. The Uganda study has been published and is now available on line and should be in print shortly.
The IZERE Center and TFT Kigali are deep in the healing of genocide victims during the 100-day mourning period in Rwanda. They have already sent many pictures and reports of the events and many successes. They are working hand in hand with the Red Cross, training many in TFT trauma relief.
We have two urgent needs for funding. Suzanne has been invited to go to Liberia to train and help a women’s organization associated with the UN. And, Celestin has organized training in South Sudan, to begin in August. Both of these programs will be reaching a population in great need. If you can help with transportation, and food and water funds, it will help us make these missions possible.

Watch and hear story after story told of the horrors suffered by Rwandans and the transformative healing that has taken place in their lives since learning TFT. The Rwandans have forgiven. And, through the healing power of TFT, they have not only forgiven, they have transformed themselves from survivors to happy, productive and loving people.
The documentary shares the work the TFT Foundation has done in Rwanda since 2006. The research that has been completed, the trainings of TFT leaders, and the humanitarian relief are all compelling. The stories of each life, family and community that can now smile, laugh, love one another and be productive again will melt your hearts as it has ours. It deeply conveys the great need for trauma relief in our world.
Peace IS within our grasp. It is at the tip of our fingers…literally. The upcoming documentary “From Trauma to Peace” will shock you in how quickly and easily people can be relieved of the devastating effects of trauma through the safe and effective “tapping” technique of Thought Field Therapy (TFT). AND how the impact of that emotional freedom not only brings peace of mind to the individual, but facilitates peace within and among communities.
A mayor in the Northern Province of Rwanda commented: “People who I have never seen smile, are smiling. People who were not productive are now productive.” Our documentarian just returned from Rwanda, filming people’s stories about how TFT has changed their lives. He said “…each story included a statement like, ‘I never smiled in my life until I was treated with TFT’.”
People CAN break the cycle of violence and feel hope and joy again. Please help us in our efforts to bring peace to our world, one person–and one community–at a time, through TFT. This film will help create the awareness that entire traumatized communities can help themselves go from trauma to peace.
A multi-national team returned to Uganda in January 2014. They did a follow-up study on PTSD and treated and trained many more people.

In April — July 1994, Extremists from the ethnic majority murdered between 800,000 and 1,000,00 persons, mostly of the ethnic minority, and displaced 2 million more.
Children witnessed their families killed before their eyes, people left maimed and scarred. The trauma and terror of this time left the country without peace, without trust and without hope. TFT has played a large part in mending these wounds.
Every year in April, the Rwandan people have a Remembrance Day. A period of time to re-affirm a commitment to peace, understanding, hope and to never let this happen again.
The strength of TFT has become so well-known, practitioners were invited to several of the events to treat those overcome by grief, trauma and pain when remembering those days.
