Leadership Statement:

What a privilege to have watched this organization increase its impact over the years!  The work of more than 2,000 volunteers has allowed hundreds of surgeries and medical procedures have saved lives and improved the quality of life for almost 150 Afghan children and their families.  For each dollar contributed to Solace more than $10 in services is provided through the generosity of Solace Partners in the medical, business and community sectors… each dollar multiplied by ten!  What an impact this has had on building peace.  It has supported an increase in involvement from one US community to eight and from four Afghan provinces to twenty-five.  Now is the time to focus on the future.  As we all watch the changes in the world affecting the children of Afghanistan, we focus on replacing fear with hope, anger with determination, war with peace, injury with healing, and animosity with tolerance and even friendship .  Solace has received about half of its recommendations to treat children from our forces on the ground in AFG.  We are now building our networks within the country through hospital personnel, orphanages, families of Solace alumni and other Afghan citizens interested in building peace and stability in their country.  We are providing health and education to children with no voice, hope to families, and a corner of peace for children in a world filled with suffering and pain.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

While hundreds of medical surgeries and procedures have been completed, many saving lives and all improving quality of life, communities in America and Afghanistan see another important advantage… changed attitudes, and changed relationships.  As Solace helps to heal the bodies of children, we are also nurturing the children; learning with each child what it means to live all your life in a war torn country; learning that each child has much to teach us.  We are connecting with Afghan families and breaking down barriers of mistrust and misunderstanding.  A long history of war has also created division among the people of Afghanistan.  As Afghan children come together for treatment, they spend time together in relationshiheal, learn and grow, we are building peace on a foundation of health.
