Lending a hand

We got an update from Africa on our friends.  They were in a tough place after dad's traffic accident.  Medical bills and no resources had left them struggling to survive in spite of the fact that they are good, hardworking folks.  Introduced by a mutual friend, they graciously let us lend a hand.  It's been a tough year, but they are courageously moving ahead, and we get to be a small part of their effort.
The picture here is the family's Christmas pose; typically formal, only the younger daughter smiles, but the family is together, healthy, and happy, which we all get to share.  What a joy.  Read more of their story HERE  They're great folks.

But do we have to go to Africa to lend a hand?  Is there maybe a similar family just down the street that could use a friend?
