The Jacksonville, Florida branch has been caring for the children of Afghanistan for many years. In our community, Solace patients find world-class medical care and loving host families. The gifts of many generous donors and the Jacksonville medical community make this possible.

With each successful summer program a new group of children affected by war receive critical medical care and enjoy the peace and comfort of our families. The experience for Jacksonville host families, volunteers and donors is just as rewarding. We learn about the unique culture and challenges of living in Afghanistan and they share the many gifts we often take for granted. But, with all the differences, we quickly learn that children are children wherever they are raised.  They all deserve a loving, caring and peaceful environment.

As members of Jacksonville, we have been fortunate to raise our family in a community filled with love and compassion. We know that this is not always the case in other parts of the world.  We appreciate the support you can help us extend to the children of Afghanistan, who may not otherwise have the chance to get the help they so desperately need.

Please consider donating to Solace for the Children and joining us in any way you are able.  You can contact us for more information at dpatin@solaceforthechildren.org or terry.haber@solaceforthechildren.org
