Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Rebuilding LIves, Bridging Languages


--by AndiCas, posted Nov 17, 2017
Following the terrible fires in my country recently, many farmers are struggling to feed their animals.  There is simply nothing green for miles, winter stores of hay are burnt and the tremendous increase in demand for hard feed means it is completely sold out in some areas.

A friend has been organising a collection of money and donations for fire victims and came across the details of one such farmer. She was having difficulty communicating with him as she doesn't speak Portuguese, but she really wanted to help.

At my suggestion, my elder son telephoned the man on her behalf and determined his exact needs. On Wednesday, my friend will visit him with a truck load of the feed his animals most need. I have asked her to buy an extra couple of sacks from me to add to the delivery.

In the midst of so much devastation, it's easy to feel overwhelmed at ways we can help. In my experience, there is always a way. And each time, the giver receives so much more than the receiver.
