a family we helped in the gypsy village

the churched helped us find this gypsy village, that had lost a lot to the tsunami. this village needed help... we came over with money raised through our church, and with money that ryan and holly had raised.. we had the opportunity to come in and help meet the needs of this village.. this specific families boat was ruined by the tsunami.. they needed money to fix their boat.. the boat needed to be fixed, so that the family could go back to catching fish, which is the family business.. they need to be able to support themselves.. part of the families problem is that the father has TB, he needs to make money, so that he can buy a bus ticket, so that he can go to the hospital and get more medicine to treat his TB... we were able to help this family, and many other families in this village...
