Hi everybody,

I am writing a letter in which I ask the concerned department in my establishment to make one of the employees free from any responsibilities for a specific period of time (about two months ) for he will be busy participating in other activities. Unfortunately, I could not come up with a word that conveys such meaning. Can you please furnish me with your suggestions?

"Please be kind enough to (...............) Mr. so and so for two months so that he can participate in the activities mentioned above.

Thanks in advance for your help
