*** The fire on early morning Christmas Day destroyed our building. All of our books and media collection that we collected over almost two decades, as well as the entire art studio, and the award winning student artworks and work in progress are all gone. Our priority is to ensure Winter/Spring 2024 classes can continue so impacts to the students can be reduced to minimum. After that, we will evaluate if it's possible to resume library services but given the current rent and expenses, we don't give high hope.
Your donation will first help the art studio to replace the equipments so the students in all 8 art groups can continue. If we can find an affordable place, your donation will also help us to repurchase furnitures and necessary equipments.
Given our limited manpower, the donation receipts may take longer to reach you. Please bear with us.
Thank you for your support and generosity. ***
