Our ongoing commitment to all war survivors – Veterans and civilians alike – continues in earnest. All who have been touched by war, both now and in the past, are affected by wars abroad. We are working with our partners in Poland, Ukraine, Estonia and Sweden to document stories of and bring healing to people who have been affected by the war in and around Ukraine. Click here for details. Contributions in support of our healing mission are sincerely appreciated.

Civilians

Civilians — men, women, and children, who often play no active part in war — are nevertheless impacted greatly by conflict. Helen Stacy, a Stanford scholar put it this way: “These are the people who suffer first, last, and in the middle.”
