I’m writing this letter as an appeal to the good Christians of Refugio.
I’m sure you’ve seen the articles in the newspaper about the dialysis patients losing the transportation provided by the county at the end of September. The county says the funding is not available and that other means of transportation needs to be found, especially utilizing family and friends.
This is an opportunity to “love your neighbor as yourself,” as our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christi commanded.
Amelia Lara and Rita Ramirez go to dialysis in Beeville three times per week on the same Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule. Frances Herring goes to Victoria three times per week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
That’s 12 trips to Beeville and 12 trips to Victoria per month, or 48 once every other month. That would meet the needs of these ladies.
I know in my heart that in all the churches of Refugio, there are more than enough loving Christians who would be willing and able to do this.
I would be willing to set up the schedule. Please give me a call if you are able to help these ladies.
They are in a life or death situation. Please call the County Press at 526-2397 and they will give you my cell number.
