(To be translated)
Thank you for your interest in learning more about this Portuguese Heal a Hurting Heart (HHH)children's curriculum.
The structure of this Heal a Hurting Heart Training and children's Curriculum follows the Bible Society Healing Hearts Club, a Bible-based Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) healing programme for children who have experienced war, abuse, or a similar human or natural disaster.
Their original programme was written for the children of DR Congo and we are grateful to be able to follow the same structure and guidelines establishing a Caribbean Hurricane version and expanding into an African Cyclone and Flood versions. More recently this has been extended to cover the Corona Crisis in Europe and around the world.
From a child's point of view, we have entered into a very strange time. Schools are closed and its not yet holidays! There is no football training, sports, no swimming, no drama, music or dance classes. Not even church as we know it!
They are not allowed to visit their friends or even their grandparents. No shopping, trips to the beach, walks in the park. As we all know this is all because of the Coronavirus.
Because of the magnitude of this Corona Crisis we have adapted our 'Natural Disaster' Heal a Hurting Heart programme to assist parents, family members, school staff, youth Pastors, Sunday school teachers and other trusted adults who can play an important role in helping children make sense of what they hear in a way that is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear.
Using God's Biblical principles and following the life of Joseph and all that he went thought to assist the child to cope with the stress associated with situation. Using the arts and drama to help the children living through what has become to many a nightmare.
This Portuguese version has now been adapted and is being translated into Swahili, Chichewa, Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, Dutch, Italian and English.
Portuguese Visual Aids and Portuguese Take Home Memory Bible Verses can be downloaded.
Portuguese Adult Educational Handouts are available, they can be downloaded as Take Home material to assist the parents.
Fun animated Portuguese informational videos for the children have been downloaded and Covid 19 Posters are available to educate the children.
Colouring pages, games, quizzes and fun activities have been included to make this a fun curriculum.

The lessons are complimented by a child's story book 'And Puppy' originally created in Dominica, by the women and children, following Hurricane Maria and now adapted for this 'Corona Crisis'.
This was a partnership between Lifeline Ministries Dominica and United Caribbean Trust.
Recently three weeks of children's Deliverance has been incorporated into the curriculum for the older children and youth. It follows Lesson #8 which is the Children's Evangelism Session.
Each of the three Deliverance Sessions are accompanied by a Deliverance Training PowerPoint for the Teachers and Youth Pastors, including Handouts and Warfare Prayers for the youth or older children. Deliverance teaching has been adapted from Warfare Plus Ministries
These three weeks can be omitted if the church or organization does not want to embark on Deliverance, or the children are very young and may not be able to grasp this teaching. If this is the case Lesson #8, the Children's Evangelism Lesson, leads onto Lesson #9'New life in Christ', which can then be followed by Lesson #12 the 'Forgiveness' teaching.
