They're asking for help for Venezuela

Our Grove friends Lili Dones and Santiago Villages have a friend who has a container going to Venezuela and he has agreed to give them some space for a good cause.  "We are using it to send necessary items that are hard to find due to the tremendous scarcity of nearly everything [in Venezuela]," says Lili.

If you no longer have use of medical / mobility equipment such  a walker, or cane or light-weight wheelchair or walking aids in relatively good condition, they will come and pick up the items for shipment.

"People are struggling for life's necessities in this country where people lived as we do now," says Santiago. "The first time I visited Caracas (back in the day) I was baffled by the incredible standard of living this country afforded it's people. Coming from Colombia next door, and having lived and been brought upon in the United States, all I could think of was, 'WOW how fabulous a people that lived high on the hog.' 'Extraordinary' would be the word that comes to mind. So guys one never knows. There but for the Grace of God, go I," he went on.

Please email them at GroveWise@gmail.com with your name and contact info and the item(s) you have so they can arrange to pick it up.
