Thanks to those who turned out to help begin to tidy up the Garden/Reflection area for ICCF on Prospect. Nine people helped weed, relocate plants and begin to give the garden area a Spring refresh.

Nepal Support after Earthquake

The needs of the Nepalese are numerous after the recent earthquake. The RPCV group Friends of Nepal has been in close contact with people in Nepal and has identified some places where the need for direct support is great and ways to get that support to those who can help. Our group has given $500 to the the Friends of Nepal fundraising efforts to help with this immediate plea for help.
