We Asked, You Answered!

A mere 6 days ago we announced a fundraiser for one of our partners, Immigrant & Refugee Outreach Center (IROC), who added 73 new Afghan refugee families in the last 30 days.

IROC gave us a list of their needs, and with your generous help, KPC Buddhist Relief was able to donate EVERYTHING on the list AND MORE!! It took 4 high-capacity vehicles to transport it all.

When Shelley Stokes, IROC Program Director, saw everything, she burst into tears and kept repeating, “You have no idea what a difference you are all making.”
