Letter of thanks, by Ibrahim Abdi Dalahow

Dear ENN

I was delighted by the report written in Field Exchange by Manuel Duce-Marques of MSF Spain in Mandera District, Northeast Kenya, I obtained from your website.

My name is Ibrahim, and I come from the same region of Kenya, notably Mandera East. Kindly submit my acknowledgement to Manuel for providing us with the report outlining methods used to distribute food and aid to that remote part of the world. I am sure MSF and he needs much support from all of us for their charitable work.

I wish I could have done the same, if only I could.

Thank you,

Ibrahim Abdi Dalahow, Dubai-UAE
