“The Inspiration is an N.G.O. and it was set up as an N.G.O.  It was run as an N.G.O. Actually the Inspiration Center has remained opened through my fundraising efforts. Government continues to help in terms of the medical care but the running of the center is the responsibility of the board and the staff. I am the chair of the Inspiration Center. So yes we will have t look at what will happen with the Inspiration Center but as of now it is an N.G.O. and so it will be run as an N.G.O.  Hopefully it will continue to get the support from whichever government wins.”
