“We just finished our first training session for the Peshmerga. We taught combat trauma wound treatment, they were very appreciative. We also assessed them and passed out moral bags. Now they have asked us to go with security escorts from front line unit to front line unit teaching them how to do combat aid. We are buying and assembling trauma kits, teaching them how to use them and will be treating casualties as well. We are doing a 3-4 day mission to bring medical treatment, aid kits and training to the units who need it most.
Attached is a picture of one of the kits we have been training them to use and have been passing out. They are about 8-2O dollars per kit, depending on the cost and availability of tourniquets. The tourniquets are extremely hard to track down, most of the soldiers have never seen one before. We’ve had to buy materials to make field expedient ones, to put in the kits now that we can’t find any more to buy
If people can get companies to DONATE equipment, we need CAT tourniquets, Quick Clot Combat Gauze, Hyfin chest seals, needle decompression kits and pressure bandages (Israeli type).
If people want to buy equipment to send to us, please ONLY BUY the tourniquets. If they want to buy anything other than tourniquets, it would be better to just donate to us because we can buy the rest of the equipment here at the local medical bazaars. Shipping stuff over here is ridiculously expensive, it’s worth it for the tourniquets because they are so hard to find here, but not worth it for anything else, as it’s much cheaper to just buy here.
They can find the address to ship to or donate under the DONATE tab at the website fightthegoodfight91.com.
The Lord is doing a work here.
Thank you for all your help Steve, it’s truly making a difference for the refugees and the Peshmerga troops. They are standing in the gap for all of humanity, fighting the evil that is trying to force itself on the world.
Bless you and all who have helped the cause.”
