Camp Aftermath, a preeminent sanctuary to be established in Costa Rica, will support first responders including active armed forces members and veterans, police officers, ambulance, and members of the fire service who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. We seek to eliminate mental anguish by introducing participants to a curriculum that includes charity work in Costa Rica while also allowing participants to receive holistic treatments and take part in calming activities (yoga, gardening etc.) within a healing and safe environment.
“Thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers who have joined me in this project, what started as a dream is quickly becoming reality.”
– Farid Yaghini
