Books for the Barrios Faces Financial Crisis

From "Literacy Effort Faces Financial Crisis" by Leslie Brinkley (ABC7, 20 March 2007):

Books for the Barrios has established 1,000 classrooms in the Philippines and even four floating libraries to reach kids on remote islands. But donations evaporated in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Books for the Barrios is now in crisis.

Nancy Harrington: "It will close if we do not get some substantial funding. We operate on $102,000 dollars a year and we need $60,000 dollars by July in order to keep this place open."
