Remember my post entitled ‘Simple People?’ in which I had shared the ‘story’ of Mangaritha Kerketta, the woman who does our ironing? Well, I’m happy to report that in response to that, I received approximately Rs.40000/- (the approximation is due to certain dollar receipts that are still to be converted) towards the cost of her medical expenses. This means that her burden of repaying the loans she took for her treatment will be greatly reduced.
This remarkable woman is back to work and continues to astound me with her courage and the graceful way in which she accepted the support extended to her.
On my part, I am grateful and edified by the generosity of so many people. It makes me want to reach out the many other Mangarithas out there, whose lives we can make a little easier by giving out of the abundance we have.
Give what you have to somebody, it may be better than you think.
