Georgetown University visited FFLV

On the 4th of January, we had the privilege to receive a visit from a few students and professors from Georgetown University which is a leading research university based in Washington DC, USA.

Over 300 blankets distributed….

The gifts were received with lots of appreciation from families who cannot afford any winter clothes. We are grateful to […]

I would like to share Reshma’s experience, one of FFLV supporters who is also a trekker in this rather extreme challenge. “Costa Rica is a beautiful country with its vivid flora and fauna. The long grueling journey has seen untouched, rugged terrain with simple and basic infrastructure. The camping has been challenging, with very basic sleeping and hygiene facilities and no electricity in most […]
