Helping to get the patients going

With a generous donation of $500, another loving benefactor of Assefa and his brother, Robel, has covered the application fees payable to the U.S. Consulate for visas (and then some) for the two young Ethiopian patients.

The $320 in application fees now paid for and the interview at the Consulate scheduled for Monday, August 20, bring the lads another step closer to take-off.

The most recent transfer also brings to $21,501.45 the amount of gifts transferred by NCCL since December 2010 to provide life-sustaining support for Assefa. (That estimate estimate awaits the confirmation of NCCL’s volunteer bookkeeper.)

Here follows the e-exchange with Salesian Brother Cesare Bullo, notifying of the transfer of the funds. (Nota bene, the e-mails read chronologically from bottom to top.)

Thank you very much, dear Brother.

Robel & Assefa have scheduled an interview at the American Consulate, to take place this Monday, August 20.

Perhaps Robel has already come to you for the funds. If not, he shall soon, I believe.

Sincerely & gratefully in Christ,
Gregory

Reverend and dear Brother Cesare,

in your charity, would you please release 5,600 ETH Birr to Robel Hailu Baraki. He needs the money in order to pay the U.S. Consulate in Addis Ababa for the application fees for visas for him and his brother Assefa.

The total amount of 5,600 ETH Birr is the combined equivalent of the two application fees of $160 USD each. (Each application therefore costs 2,800 ETH Birr.)

I am today transferring for the National Coalition of Clergy & Laity $500 USD to the Salesians’ bank account in order to cover the application fees, with a little bit also for medical care or other necessary expenses for the Baraki Boys.

Thanking you in anticipation of your gracious attention, dear Brother Cesare, I am

Yours sincerely in Christ,
Gregory
