Ongoing Donations Needed For The Following
1) Soldier's Angels is a group that provides supplies for medical units / hospitals in combat zones in Afghanistan. There is an ongoing need for pillows for these units. We receive requests monthly and are always in need of funds to supply them with pillows:
A brand new TBI (traumatic brain injury) clinic is being set up in Afghanistan where soldiers who have suffered a concussion can stay and recover. The goal is to allow for recovery in country so the troops don't need to be evacuated all the way back to Germany. They have no bedding at all.USAF Medical Evacuation Mission - video
There are 3 Air Force CASF hospitals in Afghanistan, serving all our military. These hospitals medically treat the wounded, sick and injured. They receive about 550 patients per month.
To make a donation for any of the Soldier's Angels hospitals and clinics, here is our Donation Form.
2) Ongoing donation drive for marines at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan.
This is the major artery for Marine infantry units headed for forward operating bases / combat in Southern Afghanistan. There are 40,000 Marines in Afghanistan. Our pillows are given to the marines as they leave for outposts.
To make a donation, please go to our Donation Form.
