Bassie has sent the following letter upon his return to Thunder Bay:

"Hi Everyone,

I arrived safe yesterday at close to 9am. I am happy to be back home safe and see my family after a month of absence. The job of the school building was accomplished and I left the students and families in a happy mood. The joy I saw was pleasing and I want to thank you all for making those families happy by renewing hopes that were almost failing.

Most of the high school students I saw were those that have already dropped out of school because their family can’t afford the cost.

Now, I want to set the needs across so that as we walk along and meet friends we will tell them to check out those items that they want to throw to the dump that they are badly needed in Africa. Whatever you can help towards the following will be very much appreciated:  

·    Clothing (Big or small for both boys and girls)

·    Runners (Big or small for both boys and girls)

·    Shoe (Big or small for both boys and girls)

·    Writing books

·    Pen 

·    Pencil

·    Chalks for teachers

 I want to thank you all for making this primary school building a success. Your support have helped us create a mark in the history of the country by building a school in exactly one month. A big thank you to Port Arthur Rotary club for their remarkable support. Please share these pictures.
