Thankfully many of us responded to the call for blood and the story has a happy ending. The gentleman has recovered completely and his gratitude knows no bounds. In another incident, a Panamanian fellow had his thumb severely injured so that he needed extensive medical treatment and thus could not work for several months. The call went out for financial assistance. Soon he was ensconced in an expats home, being paid to take care of it while they were away, thus allowing him to continue his treatment while earning enough money to cover his expenses. Kindness. Compassion.
