Sydney deserves a good arm

Seven years ago Sydney wrote to me about getting help with an education in business. He was able to earn his tuition gathering and shipping crafts from artisans in Lusaka to me here in the US. At this point he has earned several diplomas and is able to manage affairs of the AACDP in Zambia. I could not operate without him, and I could not have found a better, smarter or kinder man. In an email to me he said:

“While in South Africa working to improve the plight of the disabled there, I visited some companies that deal in prosthetics because I have always wanted one but finance was an issue. I thought I should ask Marsha to help me get it through some form of fundraising. It will help me in so many ways, especially employment.Most people think I cannot do certain things with one arm.”

The cost is about $1800.

Please consider what kind of gift this is. Donate  here or send a check for any amount to:

AACDP ,PO Box 3051, West Tisbury, MA (memo:Sydney)

Many thanks to the many kind people in the world.
