Three soldiers of the National Armed Forces (NBS) contingent were also injured in the explosion of the bomb planted by the rebels.

In November 2023, our Mil-Coffee.com team helped the father of the deceased, Edgars Ozoliņš, and paid for his complex operation.
We always try to help the families of fallen soldiers, as we understand that they have lost their closest people, their support. In addition to moral difficulties, they also face financial difficulties, and we understand that it is very difficult to overcome all this alone.
In order to be able to provide such support, we regularly transfer a percentage of Mil-Coffee.com income to our Veterans Fund.
Doing good things is not difficult, and by buying our coffee, you are also helping those people who need it the most!
