The mission of American Veterans Helping Veterans is based on inherent
human conditions. People need to have a sense of self worth in order
to lead happy and productive lives. American Veterans Helping Veterans
understands that Veterans often have difficulties re-establishing
themselves in society due to injuries such as TBI. This leads to
unemployment and emotional distress. AVHV believes that by helping
the Veteran improve their financial and medical hardships, positive
steps can be taken towards their return to rich and fulfilling lives.
It’s the least we can do after the sacrifices the Veteran’s and
their families have made towards the preservation of our freedom.
The AVHV Cause
AVHV helps those veterans in need and at times, supports special worthwhile causes of which TBI, Traumatic Brain Injury, is just one, but an extremely important one. There are over 310,000 returning military personnel from the war on terror who come back with Traumatic Brain Injuries suffered by sophisticated enemy IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices).
These veterans have issues in memory loss as well as many other brain related activities. We at AVHV want to help these wounded by raising funds for treatment that has shown a 97% success rate, that being Hyperbaric Testing and Treatment.
