Water well in Vietnam dedicated to LC

Postby jarkko » Wed Sep 09, 2015 12:52 pm

From Riccardo Brega, Switzerland:
We would like to share with you the pictures of the water well that, thanks to the Association Espérance ACTI of which we are members, we dedicated to Mr. Leonard Cohen. The water well serves families in a small village in the Go Quao district in the southern province of Kien Giang (South-West of Vietnam).


Espérance ACTI (Aid and Cooperation from Ticino to Indochina) is a Swiss charity Association that gives aid to the poor people of those regions, in the last years we built many schools, health centers, bridges, water wells... For info: http://www.esperance-acti.org.

We are much more than proud to have been able to show the pictures of "his" water well to Mr. Cohen before his concert in Lucca, on 09.07.2013... and it was for us indescribable to receive his "Thanks".

Amazing the breadth of lives that Leonard touches.
This is such an expected honour!
Thanks from me, too, Jarkko!

Thank you Jarkko,

Thank you Riccardo Brega for making us aware of this and to the Association Esperance ACTI for providing such an apt tribute in LC's name.

You have to wonder though how many of the people who utilize this well on a daily basis are aware of who Leonard Cohen is.....
