The Australian War Memorial welcomes donations to help fund a sculpture for those who have experienced the ongoing trauma that can result from military service.
While attention has been given to those who died during war, those who return with mental suffering or wounds and injuries sustained during their service or exposure to intense trauma, dangerous of life-threatening conditions, felt forgotten.
This sculpture, which is expected to take over two years to complete, will be set in the grounds of the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. It is hoped this sculpture - in acknowledging their service and providing recognition of their suffering, can also assist in the recovery of scars, both seen and unseen.
Please help to make this sculpture a reality by making a donation today.
(All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.)
