Relief Notes is the annual newsletter published by Ken and Visakha Kawasaki, highlighting the activities of Buddhist Relief Mission and Burmese Relief Center--USA. Starting with this issue, Relief Notes will be dated the year of publication, rather than the year covered by most of the activities, consequently, there was no Relief Notes 2001. The contents may be reproduced freely. If you would like a printed copy (no color) of this newsletter, please contact us, we would be happy to send one.
