A precious gift from China
The book donor Luo Delong (right) looking at the precious goods that have just arrived from China.
A book is a garden carried in your pocket, an old Chinese proverb says. If we take that literally, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur International School in Manosque will soon be covered by lush vegetation. Several hundred Chinese children's books were recently been donated by the Chinese Domestic Agency and personally handed over to the school's headmaster Jean-Paul Clement.
Unpacking the many boxes required many hands, including those of Director Jean-Paul Clement (third from left).
The delegation that helped school staff unpack the many boxes filled with precious content was led by Luo Delong, Deputy Director-General of the Chinese Domestic Agency; Zhang Fenglan, deputy headmaster of the Beijing Middle School Nr.8; the responsible officer for internal cooperation within the CN-DA, He Kaihui; and Zhao Wen from the division for general affairs.
