  2. So sad that people have to suffer because of lack of money.

  3. So sorry for parents with lovely children like this little girl not getting help. HAs anyone checked with having her seen by a Shriner ? They can do wonders with Children like this and it would be free. Worth a try.

  4. Got to pay for foreign aid somehow. Sickening isn’t it?
