Helping A Long Distance Old Friend
--by DANCE, posted Jun 9, 2021
Trying to sort out the long distance payment and order, not as straight forward as in some countries. To give you an example,
I had sent a simple gift before Christmas 2020: I wanted to support the Elephant Minds Foundation so I bought myself one of the beautiful elephant puzzles (all profits go to the educational projects).
I sent it to my sister's little girl who is learning English. She only got the message to collect the parcel this week, 6 months later!!!! She must now go to customs to take it, and probably pay extra for it! I do feel grateful it's there and not lost.
Wish me luck with my friend, hope it'll make a difference to her struggle.
