Donation:  This year, CCAF face much challenges for carrying out our program. This is due to lack of fund to cover the operation cost. All our donors (this year) support salary for staffs but not with traveling and other costs. While we are conducting fundraising, today CCAF received a donation from our Vice-Chairman of BoG Robert Kingston. We thank him very much for his support our program. Robert Kingston is not only gives donation but he spent times to contact charities, editing report and proposal and visit CCAF. We wish him all the best!
