Solace for the Children is a quality organization from top to bottom. They facilitated the rescue of a child I cared for in Afghanistan during my military tour that would almost certainly have perished. Their efforts have changed lives in so many wonderful ways. For each donor they provide significant feedback and wonderful updates on the cases they select for receipt of donation if they are directed. Cannot say enough about their work.

Solace is a great program to help the children in Afghanistan. I though that I will never get my life back but I was wrong because Solace helped me to go to USA to get healthy again and it gave me my life back. I am so happy from Solace. I learned alots of things about helping others and I learned about my life. Thank you so much solace for the children, Patsy, Omar and Sajid for helping Afghanistan.
I am Fahima and I am one of the children at Peace House Academy. Solace helped me to come to kabul from a very far province of Afghanistan to study here and to continue to my education. I study English and going to school. I also want to thank solace for sending me to the states after getting injured in a suicide attack. I believe now that I will have a very bright future.

I am Zubaida Tahiri from Afghanistan. I have heard a lot about the activities of SOLACE and always see the posts that is shared in social media. I appreciate their support for kids in Afghanistan.
My husband and I started the Solace LA branch and feel like we are helping to make change in the world one child at a time. When the news is reporting on all of the crisis in the middle east and I start to feel overwhelmed I think of the children we have brought here and how their whole world view has been changed. They know us and our love for them and I can only believe that it will make a lasting impact on our world. I'm grateful for all the Solace does to help those who cannot help themselves. It has blessed us, our children and all who have been involved in Solace!
• Hello Everyone!!!
My decision to volunteer at the Solace for the Children is the most wonderful experience I’ve ever met with in my life. I have chosen Solace for volunteering because I believe that helping the children would be a great opportunity that can give people the capability to think broad about feelings of those people who suffer from illnesses or some serious sicknesses. This experience has been wonderful. I think that people who have the ability to help should help. Thinking about these kids conditions and sometimes they made me feel that I even forgot that they were sick with all the funny things they do every day.
Volunteering at the Solace means the world to me. Honestly I was really happy working at Solace; my duty was to fill the forms of applicants. These kids need all the help they can get. So by writing this experience, I would encourage you all to try to start volunteering at Solace. It will change you in so many ways. This was an amazing experience! And a big thank to the entire team of Solace!!
In a world of billions, progress is made in small steps, helping one child at a time in the case of Solace for the Children. Over the years, that has amounted to hundreds of children whose lives would be much worse - or even over - without the help and medical intervention of Solace. The mission of peace through health care is noble, and the lasting effects may never be known in my lifetime, but this international effort has to be making a difference. It would be even greater if the numbers could be magnified through increased donations. Solace would not exist without the dedication of a small group of people led by Patsy Wilson and her vision. Everyone can make a difference, and Solace is proof. The pictures of the successful medical procedures and the smiling faces of the children say it all.
In Aug 2012, I started to be a volunteer for solace for the children. My main responsibility was to work with children and help them with physical therapy in Afghanistan office. However, it wasn’t the only thing that I was doing. I also helped to fill application for new patients. Actually, this was one of my favorite parts, because I would see the patients, talk to them and see their families. The hope inside parent’s heart was incredible. The innocent smile on children’s face was pure. I learned how to be hopeful, respect, love, and help people.
In 2013, I got the chance to travel to the USA and bring some of those children with me. I stayed with them in hospital, talked to them, and was the one they could trust. My experience in Solace is one of my favorite chapters of my life. Every single step that I took for those children, reflected in my life. Those children, families, and love inspired me.
