Thus, ensuring transparent information about the organization’s operation and finance can only assure donors and more than 1200 volunteers but also help them understanding the operation of our organization. So far, PFLAG keep on publishing financial report on our website, social medial platform and our brief report. We also post annual information on our websites and they are available for downloading.”
