The joy of playing can reduce the level of stress in the chidren of migrant families that have been through many difficulties. HIA has started to provide psychosocial services for children in two temporary reception centres in Hungary: Bicske and Vámosszabadi. In both centres an average of 50-100 children stay temporary, tipically for a couple of days. The target group of the project is children between 3-14 years. HIA surveys show that the psychosocial assistance is a stop-gap support for these people that will assist the children in particular.
