Who Cares Wins' aim is find donations to build a purpose built mental health hospital built for Ex service personnel with chronic mental health issues and also to provide back up services for their family and friends.
The charity ‘Help for Heroes’ is doing a great job in raising money for the injured soldiers and making donations to ex services charities. There is good press and TV coverage of Help for Heroes events that help raise money for injured ex serving soldiers.
Sadly, the ex services with shattered minds due to their service to their country are being overlooked.
