Pedro Poot's 2 broken ankles!

My name is Marcia Kirby.  On March 12, 2016 my dear friend Pedro Poot fell 3 meters from a tree while he was trimming a branch away from his home in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.   Pedro broke both ankles as a result of the fall.  As I talked with him today he was in the process of contacting his clients to cancel their guided trips to various archaeological zones in Quintana Roo and Yucatan.  

Pedro is a self employed archaeological tour guide.  Unfortunately, in Mexico there is no social safety net for loss of income due to injury.   I am asking our friends for financial assistance to help pay medical bills and cost of living for Pedro and his family.  Pedro is confined to bed rest and cannot walk.  His injury will take at least two months to heal.   

I know in my heart how thankful Pedro will be for any financial assistance that can be provided during this difficult time.   Pedro's friendship is a treasure and a blessing to me.  I am confident that other friends feel the same.
