In the utter darkness we are passing through, our Palo Alto community has lifted a small light through the support offered to children supported through kleine herzen in Ukraine. The board of Neighbors Abroad will work diligently to shepherd these monies toward the impact trusted to us. Thank you for the trust, and we will appraise the Palo Alto community of progress as the monies bring some comfort to these children. In this moment, our organization's name is emblematic of our force - Neighbors Abroad.
