December 20th marks the UN International Human Solidarity Day. This day is an opportunity to come together for a celebration of unity in diversity, and serves as a call to action for continual solidarity for the eradication of poverty. The United Nations uses this date to enlighten the public about the development of the 17 goals that were created in 2015 to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. Practicing human solidarity is important and the Aftermath Association seeks to emulate this important goal, be it through solidarity with our military veterans and first responders, or solidarity with impoverished communities around the world.

The 17 goals aim to improve the world. Through these goals, different projects can be developed to improve global human quality of life. The first of the goals is to end extreme poverty.

Aftermath Association is working to address this crucial goal through Camp Aftermath rotations to Costa Rica where active and veteran military personnel and first responders suffering from PTSD will work with impoverished communities. Participants in Camp Aftermath will work in solidarity as a team of volunteers to improve the state of those living in relative poverty in local communities throughout Costa Rica.

By engaging in volunteer projects like animal care, after-school programs, and farming, Camp Aftermath participants will work in solidarity to improve themselves and the lives of those around them. On International Human Solidarity Day, the Aftermath family stands together as an organization to promote positive social change. Stand in solidarity with us to make a difference and donate now to fund our first rotation of participants who will travel to Costa Rica in 2018. https://www.gofundme.com/ptsd-retreat-in-costa-rica
