Veterans Day Drive Yields €56,000 for Rehabilitation Center ({{commentsTotal}})


A charity campaign to raise funds for Estonian soldiers injured in the line of duty raises 56,000 euros, which will go towards rehabilitation at Tallinn's city center hospital.

The figure is not yet final, as drives from Estonian representations outside the nation are yet to be counted, but organizers say the aim, to purchase apparatus to help injured soldiers and civilians walk again at East-Tallinn Central Hospital, has already been fulfilled.

Liverwort flower badges were on sale between April 14 and 27 and a charity run and a rock concert were held as part of the campaign centered on Veterans Day, April 23.
