People celebrating outdoors

Date: Sunday, April 18 10:30am – 6:00pm
Venue: Ikebukuro West Exit Park

The 11th Annual Boishakhi Mela and Curry Festival
was held on a beautiful sunny day on Sunday, April 18.
At the event, APFS had a booth open for consultations.

Several people came to talk to us about visas and
day-to-day issues like education, medical care and taxes.
In all, there were 5 consultations.

When we weren’t managing consultations,
we were enjoying curry, naan and shingara (samosa).
At the event, we also reunited with some members
who had come to us for consultations in the past.
And we spoke with many people who were interested in volunteering with us.

The whole day, from start to finish, was full of wonderful encounters.
