Dear friends,
This is an update to our projects:.
Rice Distribution:
The Rice project has been completed.  Please click on the following link to view when you have a chance:  
Next project - Notebook/Bicycle Drive:
Our next project is the Notebook/Bicycle drive for elementary to high school students.   Many students are still struggling to have the basic necessities for school.   Besides a pen to write with, the other two most basic needs are notebooks to write on and a bicycle to commute as for many of them it takes a couple hours to walk to school.
It's our hope to help them to complete at least elementary school so they can read and write.   If you would like to participate in this project, please send your donation before April 15th, 2019.
