Total Courage volunteers brave indiscriminate rocket fire to help displaced Israeli citizens.
Israel remains under attack from multiple fronts. Please help us provide immediate disaster relief to displaced families that have lost their homes due to rocket attacks and fire. We are specifically delivering food, bedding, medicines, clothing and sundry items to victims and host families.
Our mission in Kherson, Ukraine continues. Operation Hearth is placing woodstoves in hasty shelters for displaced flood victims. We are blessed to have a wonderful Christian missionary who is a former West Point grad distributing these stoves for us. The families are so grateful!
In light of the despicable and unthinkable attacks on the citizens of Israel, Total Courage finds itself at the tip of the spear once again. Due to our network of former military officers and, ironically, West Point graduates we have a reliable supply chain capability in Tel Aviv.
We have already identified 83 families that have been displaced by rocket fire and house fires. Our team on the ground will locally procure bedding, clothes, food, meds and sundry items to serve them and their host families throughout Israel.
As volunteers, we pride ourselves on maximizing every donated dollar to serve the displaced, indigent and infirmed wherever we are called to serve. Please help us establish an enduring footprint in Israel.
Our initial requirement is $200,000 and every dollar counts.
Serving with Character,
This past week one of our Total Courage teammates, Jay Ayala, was contacted by Pele Chong who is a citizen of Maui, to see if we could serve the victims of the Lahaina fire. Out of the goodness of her heart Pele has opened her home to nine homeless victims of the Lahaina fire. Yes, the government is providing some support but there is no way it can replace all that was lost.
As all of you know we drive out the cost of the supply chain by purchasing locally as best we can and then placing the right items at the right time into the hands of those who need it the most.
Please help us help these families! Mahalo!
ps. – If you would like to know more about these families please reach out to me personally. Their stories of survival are both daunting and heroic.
Below are pictures of the families that Pele is housing.
Dear friends of Total Courage:
I hope that 2023 has started off in your favor. Thanks for your continued love, prayers and support.
2022 was a very productive year for our team. We wrapped up operations in the Republic of Georgia with a real bang by hosting the largest STEM Summer Camp for Girls in the country! A huge success!
Also, thanks to you, we provided individual first aid kits to first responders in Lviv and Kyiv, Ukraine. Our supply chain was supported by former Georgian Army officers, retired French Foreign Legion officers and the Protestant Church in Poland! What a success!
Additionally, we were able to re-open a small, partially damaged Ukrainian textile factory and manufacture Teddy Bears, coats, hats and gloves for children and distribute them to needy families often under fire and experiencing hazardous conditions in and around Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine.
Very proud of that courageous team effort.
I promised all of you that I would never reach out to you without a fully prepared and vetted humanitarian assistance plan. We pride ourselves on a 97% operating ratio. Less than 3% of your donated funds are used for administrative costs.
This next mission is our biggest to date. We are providing one hundred 5000 Watt to 7500 Watt generators to Ukraine. Supply Chain custody at each node and mode is watertight.
Over 90% of the eastern region has no electric power to heat medical clinics, sleeping areas or kitchens. Families are literally freezing with sustained below-zero temperatures.
One generator can provide enough heat for 30 to 40 displaced people to sleep in subterranean basements and hallways, etc. Fuel availability is not a problem but electric power is nonexistent.
Generators fill the gap.
Power generation means life or death in such brutal winter conditions.
Please, spread the word and support this crisis response in the face of Russian aggression.
Again, thank you.
Serving with Character!
