Care Package List


Moving into my new place, I’ve been inspired to create a new care package wish list that include some cooking items.  Some of you have expressed the desire to send something, and now is the perfect time!  We PCVs are always so touched and so excited to get mail here; it remains a constant source of happiness and support from our friends and loved ones back home.  And I can promise a cool Kazakh photo, letter or souvenir from me, so make sure you write your return address.  🙂

Thank you!!
