Friends of Barnabas Foundation Inc.
July 31, 2014

My 14-year old daughter and I recently completed a week-long medical mission in remote mountain villages in Honduras with the Friends of Barnabas Foundation. They have been managing these trips for more then 10 years and currently schedule eleven of them per year - all in remote locations in western Honduras. The need is great, and FOBF is not only helping with free clinics, but also with education for sustaining long term improved health to the people living there.

We witnessed and participated in providing effective assistance to thankful villagers from a well run organization - both the local team in-country, as well as the support office back here in the U.S. Everyone else with whom I have spoken agrees with that assessment.

FAMILIES OF THE WOUNDED FUND INC
November 16, 2011

Being affiliated with this organization is uniquely gratifying, but also instills an incredible level of responsibility to ensure our success in carrying out our mission: to help those (and their families) who have sacrificed so much in their efforts to protect us, our families and our nation. It is the distinct pleasure of each of our board members to do this. No pay. No reimbursable expenses. We don't operate that way. If you make a donation, each penny - be it part of a $5 donation or a $50,000 donation - goes into an account used only to fund checks to these families. None of us would have it any other way.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

With a wife and two young children at home, one American hero became severely injured with a traumatic brain injury from an IED blast. He received in-patient medical care from October 2006 through 2007, 2008 and most of 2009 until discharge in October 2009 – exactly three years in hospitals. Families of the Wounded Fund helped his wife at a critical time. This soldier and his family are doing well today, thanks in part to the generosity of the donors to the Families of the Wounded Fund.

Life-changing

Will you tell others about this organization?

Definitely

How did you learn about this organization?

As a mentor assigned to a 100% disabled veteran, I became aware of the Families of the Wounded Fund, an organization that had helped him and his family when they needed it most.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

It is the same every week - responding quickly to the need to financially support the families of incoming severely wounded combat veterans to McGuire Hospital.

What is its top priority in the long run?

Never stop.
