Yesterday we received a wheelchair through One World Institute, to be given to a crippled child in the Baranguy Tuboc Sur. The wheelchair is uniquely constructed to hold up under the harsh conditions some of the roads hold.
Although I have not yet met Dr. Thomas Stern and his wife Yolanda, the philanthropists responsible for this project, I have the utmost respect for them and their work. Their charity takes them to Jolo and other parts of Mindanao where few Westerners dare to trek in order to distribute these chairs to Christians, Buddhists, Hindus or Muslims with no partiality to creed and no apparent agenda except to, as Christ taught, help the poor.
We will be giving the wheelchair to Hymie this week as soon as the rain stops here in Oroquieta City and I will post the pictures on the site.
God bless you Dr. Sterns and Mrs. Sterns.
