After completing their business & projects in Goa they have gone back to their land to continue the good work of CRAC India. They have also volunteered to help our visiting members to Hungary. The girl have grown and done a part of graduation in India because of the Indian & British connection. They are continuing their studies and planning to participate in social activities as far as it can go. Shirley is a wonderful artist and Robin supports her every step of the way. Robin in the other hand is a car freak who changes his vehicles at every drop of her pen. The children i.e. Natalie is into fashion and modeling & environment. Venna is into writing, reading & gardening and Cloie is the tom boy of the family who waits to punch any one who comes in her way & guards her sisters too. Wishing them luck.

Village medical camp
The medical camp at Duler was organized by CRAC with Dr. Bagga who attended to patients and gave free medicines and tonics to the children and grown ups. There were about 100 people and instead of a half day it turned out to be a whole day since Dr. Bagga hates refusing a patient. This camp was held at Star Vision office owned by Salvador Fernandes.
