Generosity in Honduras Never Fails to Amaze Me

Today donations were gathered in the Central Park in San Pedro Sula for the firemen to take to Haiti.  They commented on the international aid that Honduras received in 1998 when we were hit by hurricane Mitch and said that it is time to pay forward.

A private charter has been scheduled by the Rotary Club of Tocoa, Colon, Honduras.  The telephone companies Digicel and Tigo have been collecting donations via text messages and have said that 100% of the donations will go to those affected by the earthquake in Haiti. 

This tiny country that has suffered economically in the past few months and is very poor has donated the little they have to help those who are in a more serious situation than our own.  I think that God will smile down on Honduras and rain many blessings on her.

This is so encouraging to read! In a country with its own troubles, people are still able to empathize with the suffering of others and lend a helping hand. I think that this is a very common trait among Latin Americans.
