Tommy Revisited

Some of the readers have asked me about Tommy and how it was going with him.

Let's go back one year ( you can visit last year’s blog and and go to entry 28 and the following days, to see what was happing around the time.

Eddy’s and Hi-en’s son Tommy was about one month old and had been in the hospital since birth and was steadily going backward insomuch that his life hung in the balance, the reality was that quick action was needed as otherwise Tommy would lose his life.  An action was started via face book and the majority of Eddy’s and my friends reacted by sending a donation which could place Tommy in a better care facility. Money talks in this country. Although a communist country, very little is left of the principle of equality and sharing. Not paying at a critical moment means a life can be lost. The result of your donation can be seen in the pictures. Once I again, on behalf of Tommy’s parents  a big thank you for all who helped saving Tommy’s life

. It was money well spent. Judge for yourself.

Wow! That's really fantastic! Enjoy your time in Sapa, Tavan and the surrounding area. It's so beautiful up there.
Speaking of which, show us a picture of this beast you're riding!

Geweldig dat het zo goed gaat met Tommy. Fijn dat jij hier zo geweldig aan hebt bijgedragen Richard. Zonder jouw noodkreet was het heel anders afgelopen.
Goed gedaan man. Groet aan Eddy en zijn vrouw.
