PWJ plans to distribute the package of daily necessities including dishes and sanitary goods which were swept away by the flood, and these activities will be implemented with our local NGO partner, ISAP (Institute for Suitable Actions for Prosperity).  ISAP and PWJ have been working together providing relief and recovery projects to people affected by the Nepal Earthquake disaster in 2015.
