Just about to head down to the river and I realized I could access these pictures after all (unable to download 64 GB cards at the moment).
You will see Mohd Ahmad below, his eyes will pierce your heart. His Mother, a widow, brought us to a family friend who is also a lawyer, his name is Haroon Ahmad (the man sitting at the table). Haroon went through my phone and eventually contacted my Dad although it was Mohd Ahmad’s tuk-tuk assistant who actually tracked us down.
You can see Mohd Ahmad arm is severely injured. It’s been like this for years. Of course he is in pain and his injury has made taking care of his mother and three sisters very difficult (his Mother was such a strong person who also works hard).
Again, I cannot believe he wanted to return the camera case. It would had been more than reasonable for him to sell it to make some money for his family but he is a man of honour and wanted it to be returned.
Now you can understand why we must help him. If it’s $2, $20, $200 or more… it’s the season of giving and the truth is the things we buy one another back home we don’t really need. Let’s help change a life. Mohd Ahmad has already changed ours.
I am away until the end of December but if anyone has any ideas as to how we can start raising money now (or any idea for that matter) please help me get the ball rolling. If not, I will when I get home. Any help in spreading this story is greatly appreciated too.
