NADA training and supplies needed in Croatia

This fundraiser makes it possible to train people in the NADA ear acupuncture protocol this July, 2021 as well as support the continued volunteer work of acudetox specialists trained in March, 2021 in Croatia. Providers from the March group have given over 500 individual and group ear acupuncture treatments, providing trauma and stress relief with the NADA protocol to survivors of the Dec 2020 6.4 magnitude earthquake, with the highest level of activity among Red Cross staff. More Red Cross personnel plan to take the July NADA training, expanding the stress and trauma-recovery support to many more people in need located in the Banija region of the country. Read more about the March training  in the new issue of the NADA newsletter, Guidepoints. 

Our goal is to grow and strengthen the presence of the NADA protocol in Croatia so that it can help reduce the fear, panic and acute stress that many people are still living with. All funds raised directly support training expenses, including acupuncture needles and magnetic beads/vaccaria seeds for acupressure. Other training expenses include: training manuals, sharps containers, and lodging for trainers.

Your donation will make it possible to introduce this highly effective intervention to new providers, and keep supplies going to the recently trained ones. This makes the NADA protocol free, or very low cost, to all. Thank you for your visionary investment in this emerging community intervention in Croatia.  

"Duh NADE je mogućnost da se spojimo u tišini, tišina koja govori, koja spaja, energija koja ujedinjuje. Energija je u nama a duh NADE aktivira resurs koji je možda spavao ili je zaboravljen na trenutak. To je čisti blagoslov. 

"The spirit of NADA is the ability to unite in silence, the silence that speaks, that unites, the energy that unites. The energy is in us and the spirit of NADA activates a resource that may have been asleep or forgotten for a moment. It is a pure blessing." - recently trained acudetox specialist, Zagreb
