Sponsor a Family February 2016

PLEASE SPONSOR ALBERTO'S FAMILY

Meet and please help Alberto's handsome family! Three years ago, at the age of 40, Alberto suffered complete paralysis from the waist down after a crushing fall on a job site. He and his wife, Diosalinda, live in Boquete with their seven children, aged from 4 to 21. The oldest boy works in a local restaurant to help support the family. They have no electricity; hand-carry water for household needs, and live in a 10 by 20 foot wooden cabin.

Alberto has fair English language skills, having worked for expats, and will be interpreting at the upcoming eye clinic for local Panamanians and indigenous, sponsored by The Rotary Club. This proud, hard-working man's relatively prosperous large family is now reduced to limited means. Alberto receives assistance from Fundacion Pro Integracion (The Handicapped Center) with his transportation and physical therapy needs. He is an appreciative participant in their programs.

If you would like to sponsor this family, and the efforts of Buenos Vecinos de Boquete, your financial support would be most appreciated.

TO SPONSOR other families like this:

We use PayPal for easy and secure transactions.

IF YOU PREFER TO DONATE BY CASH, Please contact Louise Orr (panamaleo@gmail.com) for arrangements.

When you make that important decision to sponsor-a-family, you have truly become a “good neighbor”. Your contribution of $360 a year or $30 a month (about the cost of a daily latte) goes a long way.

Buenos Vecinos de Boquete’s wholesale purchase power enables us to furnish our clients more food than they could purchase on their own in the store with the same amount of money.

When you sponsor-a-family for a year ($360), your name will be added to our “Coconut Foundation” as an acknowledgement of your concern and generosity.

Alberto and his family are my neighbors. I have two tenants who do a lot to support and assist Alberto and his family. Although this family lives in abject poverty, the kids all seem happy and healthy. And Alberto is a sweetheart. He studies his English every day. He is never down or depressed. Quite amazing !!!!

After 4 years in Panama, I think I finally get it.  The majority of Panamanians don't worry about things that they can't control, and they will find any reason to make it a happy day.  

There are some real bad apples in the bushel, but the good apples are the sweetest anywhere.

What a great attitude on the part of these "sweet apples".

Thanks for posting.
