This post made me pause and think. We take so much for granted. After reading this, I thought how lucky I am to have each of my body part intact and disease free.

You are doing a great job thinking of those people. I admire you for it.

We certainly have plenty here. Enough to share. You are an awesome lady that would be a great asset to my healing camp!

Can you email me on where and how to send help? Once I sell my house I can help.

Keep healing and reminding us of how much we have. XXOO

Bless you and your friend's

It is a wonderful and truly caring thing you are doing. Bravo to you! It takes courage... ;)

If only people from other countries would come here to the States and help our vast ‘abandoned’, who live daily in hunger, filth, disease, and abject poverty. Their numbers are considerable, and growing daily, while our country seems to want to ignore them – to pretend they don’t exist.

It feels to me sometime that this country avoids our own horribly poor, starving, and forgotten -- because to fully embrace that they are here, and increasing rapidly, would be to admit that we are indeed a declining society, that has turned its back on its own... thus, failing the American dream.

We have more than enough in this land of plenty, to eradicate poverty and hunger within our borders, and still reach out to the rest of the world to help – but we don’t… why? Just a thought...

Thank you all for your comments. Working in one little part of the world is not unique -- many have gone before, and many will come after, and many have done much more than me.

Rob, I would hope that more Americans would start to reach out to the poor and down troddened here in the States. Think of how different our country would be if only 1 out of every 10 people, or 1 in 100, or 1 in 1,000, would embrace, and start to reach out, to the least of the least here in the States. What ever happened to the volunteers here in America?

Your diary entry is truly inspirational! I often stop by here and think I could never do the things you do, but then you are one special lady! Yes, others have done similar before and others will follow in your steps, but to give of yourself to help others with so little is remarkable none-the-less.
As for why so few of us help the poorest in our midst perhaps it is because we lack the imagination to feel the compassion necessary to move beyond our own comfortable world.

I am humbled by your post. Some people have so little, and it makes me realize how lucky I am to live with food, warm blankets, and a roof over my head. My problems seem very small when compared to the challenges that so many face...

What an amazing story to tell--powerful and wonderfully personal, too. I hope you continue in your good works abroad as many of us try in small ways to help some at home, too. Your good works do help not only your patients, but also those of us who can learn the treasure of giving to others by hearing you express it.

As always, Bonnie, the stories you share here, both inspire and humble me. Blessings to you and your fellow workers in the light.

I'm so glad to hear your surgery went well! Hope your recovery is quick! ((Hugs))

I'm so glad you're back. These stories need to be told - more people need to be aware of what's going on in other parts of the world. This story touched my heart. Everyone should have a home. No person on this earth should have to live in a cave.
