Nuns Who Attended WTC Fight Bribe Demands, Red Tape To Get Donations To Africa
A word of caution to Americans who want to donate goods to foreign countries...
There's no guarantee the donations will reach their destination. Blame that on government red tape, corruption, or other factors. The president of Western Technical College, Lee Rasch, says a recent medical shipment from Wisconsin was delayed in getting to a clinic in Cameroon, because dockworkers wanted bribes before they would unload the crate from a ship. Rasch praises two nuns for going through Cameroon government channels to claim the shipment. The nuns attended Western Tech in La Crosse to study computer science. Rasch is working with a La Crosse group to establish sister city ties to the community of Kumbo in Cameroon.
