I am a trainee counsellor from England. In 2011 I spent one month in Dhaka, Bangladesh, as a link given through university. An incredible woman set up an NGO there several decades ago to help individuals with spinal injuries. This charity, The Centre for the Rehabilitation for the Paralysed (CRP - http://www.crp-bangladesh.org/) do so much good. They help many individuals and their families through tragic life changes and the terrible ordeal of a spinal injury. As a trainee counsellor my focus at the time was to learn about counselling in Bangladesh, and this was a hugely valuable time for me. But I soon became aware how this small team of counsellors were struggling for their role to be understood. They had a large client group of patients, staff, patients leaving, family members and patients who had left the center and who were still calling for emotional support. The counsellors had a small book shelf with a few counselling books, a multi purpose room with little confidentiality, lack of training and no supervision. I believe that their work is of great value and key importance as they strive to help individuals to be emotionally as well as physically ready to leave the center. Please stand with me to support this counselling team in Bangladesh. I am so passionate about supporting these great men and women and hope that together we can help their voices be heard.
