Afghan Girl

Spirit of America is aiming to help Chaplain Scott Koeman in his efforts to provide for children in Southern Afghanistan. In his initial email to us, Chaplain Koeman illuminated the hardships he experiences in the country:

"I've been deployed to this country before and have been in many villages...and I'm always amazed and grieved by the same thing--children living in scandalous conditions. The faces of the very young and very old impact each Soldier that has visited/patrolled a village or city."

Chaplain Koeman explained how providing critically needed items like blankets and shoes also helps our soldiers in harm's way:

"Our Soldiers gain trust and credibility with the local population when they bring Humanitarian Aid. In turn, this enables us to learn more from the locals how we can stop the enemy that wages war not only against us, but mainly against the stability of the Afghan government. The sooner we can bring stability to this land the sooner the Afghan people prosper and our Forces can return home."

This project is fully funded. Thank you.
