Medicine of Peace

AWB NL is part of AWB International's Refugee Support Project. AWB trains and supports 

European acupuncturists to work with over a million refugees who are resettling throughout

the European Union. Many refugees experience significant trauma from war, displacement, dangerous migration, and loss of friends and family. Acupuncture can help mitigate both short

and long-term effects of this kind of stress and trauma.

Our Story

Annette Tapia-Cornet and Marianne Ten Westenend began volunteering with AWB during

the Spring of 2022, and quickly organized multiple teams of acupuncturists all over the country to

create mobile clinics for refugees.

We are proud to say that the positive response by Dutch acupuncturists has

allowed us to create and support numerous ongoing clinics, and begin establishing

strong foundations for new relationships and locations.

We currently have a strong, core team of leaders who are looking forward to creating future trainings in community-style, NADA protocol, Battlefield Acupuncture, set-up/operation of mobile clinics, and

providing trauma-informed care. 

If you would like to volunteer or collaborate with us, or would like a team at your group's location,

please don't hesitate to contact us at awbnederland@gmail.com.
