BBC Coverage of Mongolia

Click on the above link to see BBC news coverage of the problems in Western Mongolia.  A special report will be broadcast Monday April 5.  This has been an especially harsh winter in Mongolia- especially the West which has been hit hard.  However the problem is not the winter alone.  The economic crisis led many to take out loans gambling on their herds as collateral.  Now many of those herds are gone. 

If you are interested in giving to the relief effort in the west you may do so through the C&MA website. 

Brent Liberda just returned from out West and Jeremy is still there.
