July 2021 JTS America Newsletter
Many people around the world are struggling due to Covid-19 and climate disasters this summer. More people need help but it is difficult to help because of the constraints by Covid-19. We hope to be back to normal soon as the Covid-19 crisis is over. Here are our updates this month.
