Our little one room school house for about 10 students in very poor, rural Esperanza de Turrialba was broken into over the weekend and the pathetic thieves stole all of the copper wire that gave the children electricity. What else is missing, I don’t know yet. We had a donated desk top computer, old, not worth much, but it was all they had.
So now what? I do know that stolen wire is stripped and sold, put on ships and sent to China. Ships filled with stolen copper are leaving our ports everyday for China. Big problem involving pathetic low life criminals.
But I am more concerned for the children. Sweet, innocent, poor as a church mouse, they still have a dream. They want to be somebody special, they want to be like you. They want their dreams to come true. For most of them, their dreams are much more realistic than mine ever were. There education is so far behind where it should be, it pains me to have this happen to them. These children’s parents can not afford pencils, shoes uniforms, crayons, notebooks.
Can you help me, help them? If you want to make a donation, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I am in the process of setting up a paypal account to make it easier for folks to help. Thankful for your love, care and commitment; our rural and Indigenous children appreciate everything thing you do for them. Without you, they have little hope of having their dreams come true.
