I received the following email asking for assistance:

I need a couple of computers for the Ministerio de Salud in David. Wondered if you’d mention it as I’m sure there are some usable machines not being used. I posted messages on a couple of group boards but thought I’d widen the net.
Here’s the message I posted:
Neither the abogado or the person in charge of promotion/education has a computer they can use in their work. They need database capabilities and wordprocessing. Standard computer usage.
They do not have to be new but certainly they need to be serviceable. Need monitors too.
These people are in the David office (Minsa near the old Hospital Obaldia) and are officers for all of Chiriqui.
If you have a good computer that you no longer use please consider a donation. If there is a hard drive problem or such, I will see if I can get it operational.
If you have an extra PC and monitor and would like to help a worthy cause, contact Mike at his email address above.
