My friend, Nick Wobbrock, is a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) who has made a tremendous impact in Honduras.  I am in La Paz because of him.  The month before he left last May, he introduced me to Sister Edith and the children of the Hogar San Jose who had been forced from their original home because the alcaldia wanted to establish a museum on the property, which never happened.  They had no other place to go except the abandoned property that had been used as the neighborhood dump for 30 years.  The night I went there with Nick he asked if I could help.  Hey Nick, check out the fence around the patio; check out the canaletas being soldered together for the platforms that will support the water purification tanks so the kids can have potable water to drink; check out eight-month-old Maria Jose who is wearing her first pair of shoes.  We have only just begun.  Thank you and your family for your help.
