An Opportunity to Give

I was on the bus in Honduras last week, and a young man who is suffering from muscular distrophy entered. I do not know what it was about him, but listening him to him speak really touched me.

He passed out a "Constancia" from his doctor confirming his disease and inability to work. Along with it came some bank accounts where one can deposit money to help support him. His name is Javier Alexander Zela Ya and if you would like to take the opportunity, you can deposit money online to any of the following Honduran accounts:

Banco Atlantida 1200565420
Banco Ficensa 14008400
Banco del Occidente 21-604-013400-2

$2 can pay for a meal, $50 for months rent (estimated)... I do not know what surgery he is saving money for, or how much it will cost. But every little bit helps!
