A parcel of 5kg cost 400SEK to send so carefullnes and wisdom needs be. customs are expensive as well. cash is king as they say….
About 10 shoes and 25 hood-sweaters and lots of other clothes were sold for the full benefit of La Unica. Clothes that are forgotten, are hereby reused in a win-win-win situation. School and Gym dont need to through them away, buyers get clothes and La Unica get money for school material. GREAT
At my school the library has given many books to be bought among the staff and the money goes to either Rädda barnen, Röda korset eller La Unica (med bössor i receptionen). Denna hösten har pengarna räckt till att köpa visitkort och vykort från Vistaprint med La Unica tryck på. SÅ det blir ett paket till jul och resten som en slant insatt på deras konto. De kämpar, vi kämpar, alla kämpar!
Hello all, am so glad as I send these photos. They include most of the happy ladies as they receive their gifts from friends abroad. Much thanks to Pappa Hans and the entire people of Sweden who have shown this great effort and Love for the people of Launica. Receive their thanks on their behalf.
Great and great days ahead. Regards and Hugs to all. Paul in Kenya.
Got this textmessage from Mrs Mwaura last night.
Aha! today was an unexplainable day, lots of happiness from the 120 families. God is great. We are through with everything the families have recieved their lamps, we are through with Robert and Serah now. You can relax your minds. Much you will recieve from paul. May God bless you together with all those who have remembered us. from Catherine with a very lovely smile on her. Wonderful.”
We have all waited for the shipment to arrive to Kenya for a long time. I also asked the 120 families to each put in 200 KES to a fund that a university student Sarah Ombati will get for her studies. The principle of paying forward works and all is great. I will soon recieve photos from Paul. Pappa HANS
How is you and all? Bare with us all in life. We have received all the mails and well understood. This time we have dedicated the cheque to Smart Solar Kenya LTD to be forwarded on Thursday since we have a public holiday tomorrow. We hope to go there by 8.00Hrs and do the collection. What had been hard to us is easy to our God. Keep cool.
Parents coming on Thursday afternoon to collect their lamps. Attached herein find a copy to Smart Solar.
Lets wait for Thursday now.
Yours David and Cate “
We are all waiting… This week the container was scheduled to arrive in Kenya… We are all anxious for the delivery. Africa can be a bit late … one needs to go there to really understand how time works in Africa… After 10 days in Kenya I was 40 minutes late to an appointment… Had to stop by the tailor, the shop and we could not walk to fast in the heat etc. My friend Robert laughed and said I had now adjusted to the climate… both cultural and natural climate…
We will all see!
Solcellslamporna har blivit utlovade att anlända östra Afrika i slutet av maj och jag avvaktar besked kring leveransen. Jag betalar inte förrän leveransen är gjord.
Totalt har jag sedan Dec 2010 fått in pengar till 120 bordslampor till 120 familjer. Taklampor till 5 klassrum på La Unica skolan och två ståldörrar, 4 stålfönster, vit färg till väggar och transporten. 16340 SEK
Är du intresserad av att ge bistånd till skolan, använd kontonumret 9504 355 524-1 Det är kontot jag använder för att skicka oavkortat till Kenya. Skriv ditt namn i meddelanderutan så vet jag att det är du som skickat.
