Challenge

Under Nato guidance, all seriously wounded troops are expected to arrive at a trauma center within 60 minutes of their unit's calling for help. Soldiers often arrive with only the clothes on their backs and those are frequently cut away leaving the soldier with nothing to wear and away from his or her unit. These hospitals also have local Afghans as their patients who have no other access to emergency health care in their area.

Solution

We will be sending t-shirts, underclothes, socks & sweatshirts along with military phone cards, portable DVD players, movies, healthy snacks and other hygiene items frequently requested by our troops. We'll send school supplies for the local children

Long-Term Impact

Many of our wounded soldiers will be receiving letters and pictures from home along with care packages and gifts for Christmas. This will bring real meaning to our project, A Red, White and Blue Christmas. We'll also send letters from local students.
