Sample Answer:

Dear Cheryl,

It is always a great pleasure for me to write to you. I am well by the grace of god, hoping that you must be the same. You would be glad to know that we are going to organize an eye camp in a village lying on the outskirts of Mexico City. This is because there is no good hospital and most dwellers of the village are poor and they cannot afford to go a specialized eye hospital.

You would also be glad that we already have raised a fund and taken necessary permission from the authority. Also, we have convinced a few doctors to volunteer at the camp. However, it would be great help for us and the poor locality if we get such an eminent doctor like you. We will give the poor free treatment, minor surgical operation along with free medicine.

Looking forward to seeing you to help the poor and distress people of the village.
