Karen and I would like to extend a big thank you to the Southern Cross staff, and especially to you, for your technical assistance, professional, “can do” attitude and for the discounted price you offered for the custom, 18-metre shed Bethezer recently purchased. Without your assistance and the helpfulness of Cameron at Fielders, we may not have gotten all of the materials to the building site and we may not have been able to put the building up within our tight time-frames. And that would have meant a project setback with numerous unpalatable consequences. But thankfully, as it turned out, we came in “on time and in budget”. Just!
As you can see from the photos below, the project team was able to get the steel building up, including doors, windows (oops, we didn’t quite get all the windows fitted this trip, but that’s not a major issue), gutters and down pipes. And the building has become a set of classrooms and is in use by the Kapalpal Christadelphian Primary School in the middle of the island of Tanna, Vanuatu, which itself, is in the middle of the deep blue South Pacific.
Sometimes we feel that an aid project of this kind – putting up a building in a remote part of the world, with no electricity, no running water, no nearby road and with lots of challenges getting the materials to the island itself, let alone to the site – is a little like going against the odds. So our hedge is the assistance we get from others like you and your Southern Cross staff.
So a hearty thank you for all your help.
If the opportunity should arise, we look forward to again working with you and your staff.
Terry and Karen
