Dear Ursula,


We have just received your much appreciated donation of $101 toward the construction of the pedestrian suspension bridge in El Charcon, El Salvador. Since my presentation in December, the new bridge has been formally inaugurated with due ceremony and an all-day celebration. We hear that it has become the favorite youth hang-out. More than that, this bridge has made life easier and safer for the residents of this small rural community working so hard to create a better life for itself and a better future for its children.


Please extend this note of thanks to Ithaca Sunrise Rotary for your generous support of our bridge building project. It is deeply appreciated.
