We are still raising additional funds for the "KGP Alumni Fund for COVID-19" to support continued distribution of rations to KGP community workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. An additional $100,000 is needed and we have raised $29,000 of that amount so far. Please donate today via the below buttons. We need your help!
