New community trust to support families of fallen heroes
The New Zealand Fallen Heroes’ Trust is pleased to announce the establishment of a new community trust to offer support to the loved ones of the men and women of the New Zealand Defence Force who are killed or seriously injured in service.
“On behalf of all the trustees, I am honoured to have the privilege of introducing the New Zealand Fall
en Heroes Trust,” said Trustee Baden Ewart.
“The NZ Fallen Heroes Trust was established by a group of people in the community with strong ties to the Defence Force who saw a role for direct, practical support to the families of those men and woman who are wounded or killed while serving their country.
“Loosely modelled on similar international initiatives, the Trust aims to fund projects that make a real difference to the lives of our heroes and their families,” said Mr Ewart.
The Trust has the confirmed support of four trustees, Baden Ewart (Colonel, Royal New Zealand Infantry), Neville Reilly (Ret. Brig Gen), Leith Comer (Ret. Lt Col), and Rob Munro (Ret. Lt Col).
“I know that the recent deaths and injuries in Afghanistan have brought home to all of us the very harsh reality that our men and women face every day on our behalf. They put their lives on the line to help bring freedom and independence to people in countries who need our help,” Mr Ewart said.
“This is a chance for every day New Zealanders to do their bit and give a little to the people who give so much. The men and women of the Services give it their all. Sometimes, they give their lives.
