What we are doing
When injured troops return to the United Kingdom from the war zones they arrive back without their personal effects or clothing.Â The objective ofÂ TROOP AIDÂ is to supply the â€˜basic essentialsâ€™ when service casualties return from serving their country overseas.
OurÂ GRAB BAGSÂ are currently being sent to the Field Hospital in Afghanistan, Cyprus and the Falkland Islands, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham plus the Ministry of Defence Hospital Units in Plymouth, Portsmouth and Frimley Park Hospital in Camberley.
Who we are
TROOP AIDÂ was founded in November 2006 by three ex servicemen as a result of a visit to Selly Oak Hospitalâ€™s Alexandra Wing in Birmingham.Â This is the home of the Defence Medical Welfare Services who are responsible for the welfare of all Armed Forces Personnel, male and female who have been injured during the conflict in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
