*URGENT* Help for Haiti

The people of Haiti suffered yet another deadly earthquake on August 14th that has killed thousands and overwhelmed the country’s healthcare system. This comes in the wake of the devastating July assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse. We are raising funds to send to AWB Haiti coordinator Louissaint Alcide so he can continue trauma-reduction clinics for people throughout the country. Please consider contributing to the AWB Haiti Program so that we can give our Haitian team what they need to do this work.

How to Run a Safe AWB Community Acupuncture Healing Circle (aka Mobile Field Clinic) During CoVid-19

– What We Do –

We are here to support trauma recovery and build resilience in the world, locally, nationally and internationally. We do this by learning from local people, while we offer what we know about trauma healing, so they can be most effective at supporting trauma recovery in their own communities and creating sustainable programs.

Disaster Response

AWB responds to disasters, both domestically and internationally, by working with communities to interrupt the devastating effects of trauma. This can take the form of a direct relief effort from AWB or mentorship for local practitioners wanting to respond in their own communities.  We use community-style ear acupuncture as a powerful, simple, safe way of helping people “reset” their nervous systems to a greater state of calm, quiet and clarity.

Community Service Clinics

We support over 40 Community Service Clinics in the US which provide free trauma-reduction services for veterans, refugees, immigrants, domestic-violence survivors and other populations affected by traumatic events. AWB also trains and supports practitioners around the world to establish service clinics in their own communities. AWB provides needles, clinic documents and mentorship for providers running these clinics.

Practitioner Training

AWB trains health care workers around the world in the use of acupuncture for trauma. We offer online and live continuing education trainings across the US and Canada. In addition, we hold advanced leadership training retreats and cultural exchange trips abroad. AWB also partners with organizations in Haiti, Israel, Mongolia, Greece and Nepal to provide ongoing acupuncture training to local community health workers.
