Good day dear Mr. Lorne! Finally, I got the cargo yesterday. We will count it today, for accounting in stock, and then begin to distribute to stoma patients. Thank you for the help provided, I wish you all the best in life, health, and prosperity.
Добрий день шановний пане Лорне! Нарешті я вчора отримала вантаж. Ми сьогодні будемо його рахувати, для обліку на складі, а тоді почнемо розподіляти стомовним пацієнтам. Дякую Вам за надану допомогу, бажаю всього кращого в житті, здоров’я і процвітання. З повагою Валентина
We are all very grateful to you and to all your colleagues for their help. In the photo, we are all very tired, but we are glad that we can now support stoma patients, who turn to our organization for help. Yours faithfully and wishes of well-being, joy, and health.
