We have awarded Team Rubicon with a £25,000 grant to go towards their work in areas that have suffered a natural disaster. Team Rubicon works with soldiers and veterans to provide medical aid, search and rescue support, and translation assistance, immediately after an area has been victim to a natural disaster.
Former Commander of British Land Forces, General Sir Nick Parker, first encouraged ex-members of the British Armed Forces to volunteer their skills after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal in April 2015. After compiling an impressive team of former serving men and women, Team Rubicon was established as a UK charity in the months that followed. The charity now brings together service men and women and utilises their skills and experiences to provide emergency response teams all over the world.
