Thank you from Ghana (2nd try!)

(Note: We wanted to post James' thank you letter with letterhead, etc., but since it's essentially not very readable, here is another "readable" try!! Maryanne just returned from Ghana, and James surprised her with this letter on the last day of her stay.)

Dear President,

On behalf of the Board members of Western Heritage home, Chiefs and people of Lower Axim Traditional Council, Nzema East Municipal Assembly, and all the direct beneficiaries of the many projects you have done through us in Axim since we started this partnership date as far back as 2005/6.

Through our God given donor and contributors in the USA and other part of the world, we were able to clothe and shelter 22 orphans and needy kids, provided roofing on School Buildings for kids, placed mattresses on all beds in Axim Government Hospital, established science laboratory for JHS Students, help Axim library with benches and Books and a motor bike. We also tried to establish Remedial classes for Student and a Bakery which we could not succeed.

The 43 kids we are currently paying their fees at Christ The King Academy in Apewosika is a great sign of relief to their poor mothers let alone the fathers who's fishing business is collapsing due to the oil find in our sea.

You Madam President, coming to Ghana to see the girls hostel at the Axim Community Development Institution being fixed and meeting with the staff and students at the Institute was kind of inspiration and promotion for this school.

We shall forever be grateful to you and your team for your partnership and pray that Our Dear Lord will guide us ALL to find good and useful projects which will be within our means to support.

We ask for Gods guidance and blessing to you, the entire members of Ghana Together and your wonderful sponsors in the coming years.

Yours Sincerely,

 Nana Kaku Bullu III (Development Chief, Lower Axim Traditional Council)

(aka James Kainyiah, Chair of Western Heritage Home Board)
