ABF The Soldiers' Charity are for soldiers, for life.
ABF -The Soldier's Charity, formerly known as the Army Benevolent Fund was founded in 1944 to help with supporting wounded and distressed British army veterans after the Second World War.
Since then, the British Army has continued to serve around the world in a variety of conflicts both large and small in army parlance known as 'high intensity operations' and 'low intensity operations.'
In recent years, the army has faced hostile enemies and taken many casualties in Northern Ireland, the Balkans, Kuwait, Sierra Leone, Iraq and Afghanistan. For every physical wound there additional mental scars both of which can lead to needs for long term medical and financial support.
Half of their money is donated to individual veterans or their families to help with, for example, debt relief, mobility, education bursaries, care home fees and respite breaks for helpers. The other half of their money is given as grants to more specialised charities dealing with ex-soldiers.
Good cause. Good charity. http://www.soldierscharity.org
