As Australian Director of MongolianCare it is my pleasure to bring you this our first newsletter.  From the first meeting with Narmandakh Dondov (Naraa) in July 2000 the project has grown steadily.  Over the past 9 years we have seen the project develop from a nice idea to an established community providing accommodation, warmth, employment and a sense of belonging for 35 people.   We want to thank the Board of Directors, individuals and organizations who have supported with finances and encouragement to see this dream become a reality.  Its impossible for me to describe the transformation in the lives of those who have encountered the project.  On their behalf we say a huge thanks!
