Quilts of Valour Australia
Following tragic loss and injury of Defence Personnel in Afghanistan in 2010, a resident of Victoria learnt of the need to reach out to wounded ADF personnel and honour their sacrifice for serving Australia.
Other coalition forces are involved in making quilts to wrap the wounded in love, care and healing. It is such a powerful symbol in a traumatic time that it felt like an important issue that Australia should become involved.
Victorian resident, Helen, learnt how touched an injured soldier was by the warmth of the quilt he was awarded from Americans. She was inspired to establish an Australian organisation to award quilts to Service Personnel, veterans, and immediate families of Defence Personnel and veterans who have passed.
Quilts of Valour Australia isa a registered Australian Charity.
