WOUNDED HEROES AUSTRALIA
Who we are
Wounded Heroes Assoc is a national community organisation established in 2007 to support Australian servicemen and women and their families, and to ease the financial, emotional and personal hardships of contemporary military life.
What we do
We do whatever it takes to to fund support services for deployed personnel, the wounded and their families. This is principally done by providing short-term emergency relief payments to individuals and their families, although funds are also available for other purposes
where a need exists.
Why we do this
The men and women of the Australian Defence Force answer the call of duty selflessly and without hesitation, and forfeit much during their service to Australia. They give more, risk more and sacrifice more, and in the event of wounds or injury, their lives will never be the same again. Standing behind these young men and women are their families, silent and supportive who get on with everyday life during their loved one’s absence, or convalescence after their return from operations. Australia owes these military personnel and their families a debt of gratitude for their service.
