MRS. BUSH: I heard this story that Madame Kikwete was at a hospital with our head of USAID in Tanzania, Pam White, and the head of the hospital said the thing he needed most was transportation for patients, for emergency use. And so USAID -- Pam White, our USAID person here, went back and talked to USAID and was able to get this ambulance.
And so it's my pleasure and thrill to be able to give you the keys. (Applause.)
MRS. KIKWETE: Thank you so much.
