  • Why is it much worse tham it was for all the other RPCVs? Granted it was sudden and unforeseen but, God willing, they could go back, right?

  • Mark, All EPCVs have been cos’d. Their service was terminated.. They may reapply. But they are not on administrative leave. There is no guarantee that they can go back to the same country, let alone the same site.
