IAPC goes on! With great joy we can announce that after a long search we luckily found enough willing people and have been able to constitute a candidate board. More to follow about this. We are however still very happy with new activists/cooperants! Also to think how IAPC can continue to function in changing times. Might you be interested? Having a candidate board, we strive to open again and be able to assist people once more but what this will look like still has to be filled in, also because of corona. Want to know more?
