The sustainment and further development of the SCC is so important to the whole community. The sustainment it self costs nearly $3000 per month (or $100 per day) including the loan repayments. We all know that interest rates have gone up and making the repayments much higher.The SCC team with great volunteers make a large effort to raise funds through various fundraising activities. We also pursue government funding where possible. However, we certainly need your contribution to fill the significant funding gaps in sustainment and to prepare for the development in the near future.
