Joe and Lucia Ditman urgent need

Hello friends,

I am posting this request for financial assistance on behalf of my two dear friends, Joe and Lucia Ditman.
Joe describes their urgent financial need as follow:
        Hello and Jai Meher Baba! Due to circumstances I am forced to write this appeal on behalf of my wife and myself. We have been Baba_ followers for 40 years and currently live in Myrtle Beach. We donated a good portion of our life in service of our Beloved through The Meher spiritual Center and within the community.
        Unfortunatly our lives have taken a terrible turn the last several years and an extraordinary combination of circumstances has led us to being homeless and now even without a car. My wife Lucia is suffering from severe diabetes and has lost one leg and part of her other foot. Lucia has been in a wheelchair and is hardly mobile. She has been in and out of the hospitals with a variety of ailments which have cost us all of our savings and resources.
        We had been living in our van at Walmart's parking lot for some days, but now our van is out of commission and is in junk yard, Lucia is in rehab recovering from an infection and I am staying at Meher Spiritual Center for few days. We have survied off one social security check but remain hopeful that things will turn around once we can get a stable living situation with an apartment and a car.
        I thank Mehernoush McPherson for taking the time to post our appeal on facebook. I also thank any assistance provided by friends and family within our Baba world. Your donated fund will be only used to rent an apartment so we can be together and to buy a car for transportation.
        We have been truely humbled by this sitution and any assistance provided would allow us to take these first few steps toward recovering our lives. I appreciate your time and wish you well. Jai Baba!
