Texas Hill Country Chapter of Safari Club International participates in the Safari Care program. SCI Members provide humanitarian relief efforts around the world by chapters or individual members collecting medical, educational, hygiene and other relief supplies, clothing and toys, which are then taken to remote areas of the world by hunters who have planned hunts in these regions. The supplies are delivered directly to villages, clinics, schools and orphanages for villagers, doctors, teachers and caregivers to utilize. Providing medical supplies and medical equipment to communities in need. Monique Richard, member & board
Your chapter recently donated $5,000 to the Trinity Oaks Foundation in support of their Wounded Veterans Heroes Celebration. Two Purple Heart recipients, Ryan and Matt Mobley, and their father Mike, were provided an all-expense paid plains game hunt to Namibia.
Ryan suffers from PTSD TBI due to IED's during four combat deployments. He was awarded a Purple Heart on 28 August 2007 for wounds received during combat operations near Ramadi, Iraq. Matt is also a Purple Heart Veteran from the Iraq War.
Trinity Oaks believes it is important to include close family members as part of the healing process and to act as co-creators of positive memories surrounding our hunting programs; therefore, Mike was able to join his sons on this memorable trip.
The total cost of the trip was $28,700. Trinity Oaks program funding and Omujeve Safaris in Namibia covered the cost for Mike, and Omujeve covered the costs of daily rates and plains game trophy fees.

Keep Us Free, Ship to the F.O.B.: The THCC has decided to do something different for our troops overseas. We will be sending care packages to several "Special Operations Teams" serving as our "Tip of the Spear" at several Forward Operating Bases throughout Afghanistan in the remote mountain regions. These heroes serve several weeks and sometimes months in these very remote locations and are unable to get supplies other than MRE's and basic essentials. The THCC will be sending care packages directly to the troops stationed in these very remote locations.
