People ask me all the time - Why Panama ?- and especially Why Boquete?
Two weeks ago at the Tuesday meeting the community was invited to a day of awareness (Heart in the Park) to learn how Boquete provides services for persons with disabilities.
I mentioned the great work done by the Fundacion (FPI)better known as the Handicap Foundation- where recently volunteers went on a home visit and found a severely disabled man, living alone, in a shack with no roof, sleeping on cardboard using hose for water, his body racked with painful spasms.
Yesterday, Romero got a new home. Two volunteers at the Foundation, Judy and Mike Hart asked him to come and live with them. He said "Yes."
That's why I live here.
