Dear Mr. Chinmoy,
It is with great pleasure that I enclose herewith UNICEF’s official receipt for the contribution of $500 .00 which was so generously donated by the Meditation Group (at the UN). It is indeed gratifying to know that our U.N. colleagues have throughout the years continued to support the work of UNICEF by sponsoring such events as the Bazaar held in the Secretariat Lobby on 16 October.
On behalf of the Administration of UNICEF, I would appreciate your conveying to the Meditation Group our deep gratitude not only for the contribution but also for the time and effort put into making the Bazaar such a success . —– —– ——
Sincerely yours ,
Sven P. Blackberg, Comptroller
