During the past ten years much has been accomplished at the Friendship Village.  These accomplishments have been made possible by the generous support of donors throughout the world.  The Village is committed to continuing to provide support for 160 residents (40 veterans and 120 children).   Food expenses have risen 67% during the past 12 months and are expected to continue rising through next year.  A new ecological wastewater system needs to be completed, along with a separate drinking water purification system.  Both of these items are expensive, but necessary. Basic repairs and upgrades are needed on some of the buildings, and recent flooding - the worst in 30 years - has immensely increased the need for these repairs and caused serious new problems.  The US Committee responded immediately by sending $18,000 to the Village, but more is needed.  We appeal to you, our supporters, to consider giving a little extra this season to help address the emergency situation. ~ Dan Ryan
