A Thank-You Note To Amy Peake - The Famed Sanitary Pad Missionary
My dear Amy,
Knowing how busy you invariably are, I will keep this missive-of-gratitude, pretty short. I want to thank you, from the botton of my heart, on behalf of all the ladies in Ghana's Central Region's Gomoa Buduburam Camp Liberia refugee settlement area, whom you have so kindly gifted one unit of your sanitary-pad-factory-in-a-shipping-container, to.
The key stipulated-condition, that they will recieve the donated factory, and a year's supply of raw materials, only if they are able to find a sponsor to pay for the cost of the insurance and freight, involved in shipping the gifted container, from a UK port, to Tema Port, in Ghana, cleared, and delivered to them, in Camp Liberia, has now been miraculously met, as we speak.
As luck would have it, when approached to do so, Bushira Makuyi, a brilliant, dynamic and hugely successful young Ghanaian businesswoman, readily agreed to meet the said logistics-costs, for those lucky Camp Liberia ladies - as the first emergency-humanitarian-initiative, of the new charitable foundation (the Bushira Makuyi Foundation), which she is setting up, as a vehicle to enable her give back to society, for her amazing good fortune in life.
The generous-hearted Bushira, and her equally brilliant husband, Samuel Agyin Ansah, the CEO of SpeedPrints Ghana Limited, and Lavita Ghana Limited (a leading logistics company here), both very successful businesses, which the husband-and-wife--duo, jointly own, and run; are examples of Ghana's private-sector's nation-building, creative-young-achiever-demographic, amongst our younger generations, quite a few of whom I have been privileged to know, and work with, over the last few decades.
Ghana's private-sector, is indeed incredibly lucky, to have such imaginative, world-class young entrepreneurs - most of whom, aside from having such amazing drive, and business-acumen, are also socially and environmentally responsible individuals, thank goodness. It certainly gives one hope for the future of our dear nation.
Finally, our network's contacts in Liberia, the Gambia, Sierra Leone and Guinea Bissau, are all very keen to partner you, and your very able Loving Humanity management team, to enable them also empower deprived females in those nations' base-of-the-pyramid demographics, by setting up sanitary pad and incontinent pad manufacturing plants, too, in partnership with Loving Humanity UK. We will recommend Loving Humanity, for the Zayed Sustainability (Health Sector) Prize, once all those projects are executed. Cool. Peace and blessings to you and your Loving Humanity management team, Amy.
