CNY BFTW Books, in Agbor, Nigeria ... and a letter of thanks
Check out the origin of this shipment (CNY BFTW) and labels of two of the cartons show Adirondack FH RC, and Herkimer RC. .... Ward T. Vuillemot
Good morning. .... I write to thank you, all Districts, Rotarians and other individuals involved in this laudable programme of World Books [Books for the World] and Educational Materials for the benefit of mankind.
I am pleased to announce that we took delivery of the container yesterday and was opened. We are very grateful for keeping your words and promise of being a Gift to the world.
We didn't have crane neither fork lift. We resorted to manual approach to off load the books and brought down the container . This took us to almost midnight. All Rotarians of my Club were all there and involved completely.
We plan to give it real publicity at all levels. All Clubs of the District will be involved in distribution to the needy rural schools. We sincerely appreciate those ones meant for primary and secondary schools. They will really touch the lives of school children in rural areas.
We are grateful. Grateful for your kindness, time and commitment to serve humanity.
God bless you immensely. This is real gift to the world.
