Remember the FALLEN,
- wear a POPPY
What is the POPPY Appeal?
Every year, for a couple of months leading up to and including November, volunteers, veteran organisations and schools, hand out paper Poppies in return collecting donations in support of military veterans and their families.
Members of the public wear the poppies on their chest as a symbol of Remembrance of all Service men and women who fell or were injured in conflict.
It includes specific Remembrance events and activities, such as Remembrance Day - 11th November and Poppy Day, where the public is encouraged to participate and join veteran organisations in remembering those who have served and sacrificed in war.
This not only includes those that have served in World War I and II, but all those that have
served in any war and are still serving today, as well as their families.
We recognise military veterans who have served South Africa honourably.
We remember and salute the fallen.
We advocate peace and promote unity and nation building.
We do not discriminate.
We strive to uphold the wellbeing benefits of military veterans.
We defend the interests of military veterans.
