Emergency fund saves lives.

Early this morning we heard of a very bad accident that included Linia's mother. A tap-tap she was riding in roled and many were hospitalized. Some had lost fingers, one lot an ear, others with deep wounds and broken bones. We went to the hospital where we found the people had no money to purchase the drugs or shots they would need to survive. There is also Dr.'s bills and costs for casts and other bandages. We were able to help these poor people with some of the funds we have in our emergency fund to help in hurricane relief and other emergencies. We are happy to report that there were no deaths resulting from this tragic accident.
