Getting results

I received a text from Edward a few days ago. Flora in grade 9 had an accident and broke her shoulder. The transport costs to get her into surgery & the treatment costs themselves were outside the reach of the orphanages current funding. Flora lives at the JNMCC orphanage which plays as main host to AVIF volunteers at the moment. Luckily the Director is a local man and persuaded the hospital that he'd find the funds somehow if they could just treat her now.

Within a minute of receiving the text from Edward I'd rounded up a few of the MHF crew with Facebook's group messaging facility. Funds were sent by Moneygram instantly by Zoe and arrangements to reimburse her made.
Simple as that, job done.

Flora is recovering well, but I guess the sunshine helps ! (speaking from a snowy North Yorkshire when its meant to be Summertime??)
