Since 2013, the Foundation has worked in Pakistan and Australia to provide financial support for the families of servicemen and women killed and wounded in the line of duty.
On average, a police officer is killed in the line of duty every single day in Pakistan, often leaving a family without a breadwinner. Since 2013, the Foundation has provided $29,000 in direct assistance to the families of fallen officers.
