Congratulations to long-time AWC member Barbara Wenger and family on the safe repatriation of their daughter Cristina Po Wenger from Nepal. (see attached photo) Cristina has been working in Nepal as a volunteer for the NGO Circulo de Cooperacion at a charity school in Bhaktapur. She has decided to temporarily return from her adopted country Nepal in order to coordinate the campaign for aid to be sent in the wake of the devastating earthquake. She feels that for now she can be of more use here in Europe than in Nepal. The NGO Círculo de Cooperación is a small hands-on organization that assures that all aid received will go directly to the Nepalese people. The American Women’s Club would like to collaborate with Círculo de Cooperación and encourages all of our friends to do likewise. Below are the details of how you can make a donation, large or small, to provide generous, courageous volunteers such as Cristina with the resources to help rebuild Nepal.
Donations can be made by bank transfer to “Circulo de Cooperacion”
