Thank you very much for the CARE package which you sent to Europe as a Christmas gift in my name. It was a nice thing to do and I appreciate it deeply.
I have just received a letter of thanks for the package from a French mother who enclosed snapshots of her four children and told me how much they enjoyed the gift. It was very touching, as she did not complain, but it was obvious that they needed the food very badly.
My best wishes to you for a Happy New Year and all my love as always.
