I did volunteer myself for participating in this important gathering. But my problem is that I have yet to find the ways and means to reach US to be a volunteer of this Seminar. I have been totally depending on my friends and well wishers for my financial support so far in my whole life. I hope and pray that I will be able to reach US for this event.
