“Prince of Wales” Foundation in Romania has launched a programme to support the Romanian soldiers injured in the theatres of operations and the retiring military, while also announcing a fund raising campaign to counsel them and enable their professional reconversion, the foundation says in a Facebook post.
The foundation starts “a public campaign aiming to raise funds for two new programmes: a counseling programme for the military suffering of diseased caused by stress and a professional reconversion programme, including by supporting them to start small businesses to contribute to the life of their communities.”
The programmes will benefit of expertize provided by several UK NGOs which support military heroes.
The fund raising campaign will end at the end of September, at the same time with Invictus Games from Canada, a sports competition initiated by Prince Harry and dedicated to all soldiers worldwide, who have been wounded in the theatres of operations.
The foundation says it will release a report on the raised funds and on the way the money will be spent, as well as RON bank account for donations: (name: Fundația Prințul de Țara Galilor).
The foundation also informed it would support three Romanian soldiers wounded in Afghanistan to race for the Invictus Games.
30,000 missions of the Romanian soldiers have taken place within NATO since the Kosovo war in the 90s up to the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the foundation reminds. Overall, 28 Romanian military were killed and almost 200 were injured.
