Protection from Wild Animals
"I would like to congratulate you for your contribution to the world's various societies on this construction technology.
I am living in East Africa. Let me tell you something. The villagers of one remote area had difficulty in constructing concrete buildings because the sand in the area was too salty for Portland cement applications. Their houses made of mud and wood were unstable and they were frequently becoming prey to wild animals, i.e leopards and lions. Using information from your web site, I managed to construct a circular earthbag house roofed by corrugated iron sheets. This technology was appreciated and many villagers applied it for their houses and the problem of man eaters was solved.
I then thought that it will be good to return our thanks to you for saving the lives of many villagers. Although we do not have money to pay you back...but God will reward you.
