It is with great sadness that we inform you that our dear friend, colleague and project coordinator Glenys Chapman passed away today. Nepal and Open Heart International was a large part of Glenys' life. Many of you, like me, are richer for sharing in her passion for Nepal. Glenys first volunteered with us in 1996 and traveled to Nepal on 23 individual occasions. In addition she volunteered hundreds of hours each year to project planning, fundraising and evaluation. She will be sorely missed and will leave an irreplaceable hole within our organisation. Glenys held a strong Christian faith, and firmly believed that this is not the end of the road, and that better things are still yet to come. Best wishes, Michael Were General Manager

@ilisys Frustrated with service support on ticket 6512412. Waiting 5 days for easy fix, costing our charity $$ in lost donations.
