We are more than willing to cooperate and contribute in any way possible to facilitate the implementation of this vital project. Your support in addressing this water crisis would be invaluable to our community’s well-being. We appreciate your attention to this matter and eagerly anticipate a positive response.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

Or, (c) Write a precis of the following passage. Add a suitable title.

From the moment we are born, we cannot live alone. We stand in continual need of assistance of all around us, for body, soul and spirit. We need clothes which other men make; houses which other men build; food which other men produce; we have to get our livelihood by working for others, while others get their livelihood by working for us in return. As children we need our parents to be our comforters. To take care of others we cannot spend a day without our fellow men. We require teachers to educate us; books and masters to teach our trade; and when we have learned it and settled ourselves in life, we require laws made by other men who died hundreds of years before we were born, to secure for us rights and properties, to secure for our comforts in our station and we need friends to comfort us in sorrow and to share our joy.

Ans:

Interdependence in Life

From birth, we rely on others for clothes, shelter, and food. As we grow, we need parents, teachers, and friends. Our livelihood depends on working for and with others. Laws made by past generations protect our rights. Life’s journey is woven with interdependence, connecting us through comfort, sorrow, and joy.
