Call to Action - Help Keep a Child Warm!

 About six weeks ago our Lao Country Director, Barbara Shimoda, embarked on a mission to provide the children in the remote areas of Xieng Khouang Province warm hats as the winter and cold temperatures quickly approach.  With a goal of 500 hats we are asking that everyone who can participate help us reach that goal.
