Third Annual IVC Dinner a Success

On September 22, 2016,over $13,000 was raised at the 3rd annual IVC dinner.

A sincere thank you to all who came to the event and enjoyed the Indian food and dancers! Thank you to all who donated either at the silent or live auctions, or who made a donation in lieu of their attendance, or an outright donation. Thank you to all the patrons and organizers for giving of their time and talents, especially Sharon Nolte, our lead organizer.

International Village Clinic appreciates you all!

November 7 is Give to the MAX Day

The next opportunity to donate to IVC will be November 7 on the “Give to the MAX Day.” Please mark your calendars to donate to IVC. Ben Theisen, IVC board member, is leading this campaign. IVC needs and requests your participation in earnest. Thank you!'

Returning to India

I am leaving for India in the first week of November for my annual 6 month visit to the project. You will receive my next newsletter from Marufpur, India.

Thank you for your continued support. You are changing lives in the poor villages of India!
