I never endorse fund-raising campaigns - however, this is a #noble and worthwhile cause (like many #gofundme campaigns I am sure) - but in this case there is a #personal connection and there have been and continue to be tangible #benefits for Mr. Jansen over the last few weeks since the effort commenced #Horses #Therapeutic #Injured #Warrior #WoundedWarrior #Rojava #YPG #Volunteer #Kurdistan #RichardJansen
Richard Jansen is a young #Dutchman who suffered critical injuries on the front line battling #ISIS. He was hit by an #RPG and still has a piece of shrapnel stuck in his brain which causes the paralysis in his left arm and leg.
He is responding greatly to being around horses and being outside. His first riding lesson on a 13-year old mare was amazing. He laughed for the first time in 4 months! He felt proud of being able to do something completely without any help, except for the help of "Leen" the willing mare, who listened to his body and soul amazingly!
We would love to give Richard his self-confidence, and his power back! #Hippotherapy works not only on his soul but also on strengthening his muscles.
Please help us to keep him in the saddle and out of that wheelchair!
