Among other needs, war-affected populations need psycho-social and spiritual help to mitigate the effects of war traumas and to enable them to move on with their lives.

22 November 2016 – (By Bill Firman) - There is an idiom sometimes used in English, ‘At Sixes and Sevens’. It is not clear where it comes but one internet site suggests ‘The phrase was originally “to set on six and seven” and is thought to have derived in the 14th century from the game of dice. The meaning then was “to carelessly risk one's entire fortune”'. That same site asserts that the meaning of the idiom today is ‘A state of confusion and disorder, or of disagreement between parties’.
