Send skadede krigsveteraner på retreatophold

Vi er et dansk par som har startet et projekt for krigsveteraner.

Vi bor på en ejendom i Katalonien, Spanien hvor vi er igang med at etablere et retreat-center for krigsveteraner og et sanctuary for heste.

Vi tilbyder krigsveteraner med PTSD og andre krigsskader et ophold i vores campinglejr: Camp Zero. Her kan de få en pause fra hverdagen i smuk natur, langt ude på landet, oppe på et bjerg i en skøn naturpark. Ejendommen ligger smukt og stille og er omgivet af bjerge og skov.

Vi afholdt vores første camp for danske krigsveteraner i maj 2021, hvor 3 veteraner var hos os i 6 dage inkl. rejsedage. Vi finansierede selv denne camp, og den var en kæmpe succes.

Vi har desværre ikke mulighed for med egne midler at afholde flere camps, derfor søger vi nu igennem crowdfunding at indhente midler til at afholde camp nr. 2.

Vores håb er at kunne afholde camp nr. 2 for 4 krigsveteraner fra d. 27 september til d. 2 oktober 2021.

Vi sørger for alt, flybilletter, transport fra og til Barcelona lufthavn, mad og fuld forplejning under opholdet. Veteranerne skal bare møde op i Københavns lufthavn hvor de mødes med vores samarbejdspartner Jesper Hede. Jesper er koordinator og støtte for veteranerne på hele rejsen til vores ejendom i Spanien og tilbage til DK igen.

Det kan være udfordrende hvis man har PTSD at skulle ombord på et fly og i det hele taget holde styr på alt det praktiske i forbindelse med at rejse.

under deres ophold hos os får veteranerne mulighed for at deltage i forskellige aktiviteter i det omfang de har overskud og lyst til. Alle tilbud er helt frivillige.

Veteranerne kan deltage i aktiviteter såsom: pasning og træning af vores heste, hjælpe til i køkkenhaven, være med i byggeprojektet, deltage i madlavning osv.

Det er vores ønske at veteranerne får en følelse af at have et fristed her på gården og at de samtidig føler at de er en del af et fællesskab omkring projektet Camp Zero.

Veteranerne bliver også tilbudt at deltage i yoga og guidede meditationer under deres ophold her.

Det er givende og helende for veteraner med krigsskader at få et ophold langt væk hjemmefra i smuk natur med højt til himlen, hvor man kan deltage i fysiske aktiviteter eller bare nyde freden og roen, naturen og dyrene i sit eget tempo.

Ved at støtte vores kampagne er du med til at give 4 danske PTSD ramte krigsveteraner mulighed for at få et ophold i Camp Zero i de smukke spanske bjerge, og samtidig hjælper du os med at videreudvikle vores veteranprojekt Camp Zero til glæde for endnu flere krigsveteraner i fremtiden.

Help us give combat veterans a nature experience in the spanish mountains.

We are a danish couple whos has started a project for combat veterans.

We live on a farm in Catalonia, Spain where we are establishing a retreat-center for combat veterans and a sanctuary for horses.

We offer combat veterans with PTSD and other war inflicted ailments a stay in our campsite: Camp Zero.

Here they can get a break from their everyday lives in beautiful nature, far out in the countryside, on a mountain in an amazing nature park. The farm is surrounded by mountains and forest, and it is peaceful and quiet here.

We held the first camp for danish combat veterans in May 2021, where 3 veterans stayed with us for 6 days, travel days incl. We paid for this camp ourselves, and the camp was a great succes.

Unfortunately we don't have the funds to pay for more camps ourselves, which is why we now through crowdfunding will try to gather the funds to facilitate camp nr. 2.

We are hoping to be able to hold camp nr. 2 for 4 veterans from September 27th until October 2nd 2021.

We take care of everything, plane tickets, transport from and to Barcelona airport, food and full accommodation during the stay.

All the veterans need to do is come to Copenhagen airport where they will meet our partner, Jesper Hede.

Jesper is coordinator and support for the veterans during their whole travel to our farm in Spain and back to DK.

It can be challenging if you have PTSD, to get on an airplane and to have to take care of all the practical things when traveling.

During their stay with us, the veterans will be offered to participate in different activities for as little or as much as they feel like or have the ressources to do. Participation in activities is completely voluntary.

The activities can be helping to take care of and train our horses, help in the garden, being part of the building project, help with the cooking etc.

It is our hope and wish to be able to give the veterans a feeling of having a sacred place here on our farm and that they at the same time feel that they are part of the community, project Camp Zero.

The veterans will also be offered to participate in yoga and guided meditations during their stay.

It is giving and healing for combat veterans with different kinds of injuries to get a break far from home in beautiful nature, under a big sky, where they can participate in activities or just enjoy the peace and quiet, nature and the animals in their own time.

By supporting our campaign, you help give 4 veterans with PTSD an opportunity to stay in Camp Zero in the amazing spanish mountains, and at the same time you help us expand and evolve our veteran project Camp Zero, for the betterment of many more veterans in the future.
