Former world players unite to help victims

Charity is one of the best virtues of the human being and in difficult times it should be practiced more regularly, since those who have more resources, before God are committed to helping and giving that helping hand to those who need it.

The Honduran internationals, Maynor Alexis Figueroa, Oscar Boniek García, Bryan Acosta and Carlo Costly, have analyzed the same thing, who together with their partners have come together in an effort to help their compatriots from the north of Honduras who are suffering from the ravages of the tropical storm Eta that has left several Hondurans in the street in mourning.

Through social networks they have requested help especially in Houston where three of them are, although Acosta in Dallas is also close, asking for specific donations, while in the case of Boniek García he made available two historical shirts that will be raffled, whose funds will be delivered to the victims catrachos.,


Karen Torres, the wife of the Honduran international, Carlo Costly, is very enthusiastic, since she has promoted, together with Oscar Boniek García and other internationals, aid for the victims of Storm Eta in her country, which is why she has promoted on her social networks a campaign to help their countrymen in Honduras, despite living in the United States

“A few days have passed since the impact of the hurricane, there are heartbreaking scenes of people with nothing on the edge of the streets, other desperate people looking for their relatives who have not yet appeared, boys and girls who wander the streets looking for their parents with the innocence of a child who does not know the magnitude of what has happened but in his mind and heart the images and the anxiety of what he lived will remain impregnated” he said very sadly.

This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is similar to this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself, he added.

He had no qualms about commenting on many things he had seen from afar, the sincere solidarity of the Honduran: “I have heard many phrases these days and one of them is “only the people save the people” and they are absolutely right and I would add one, ” Only the true Christian who feels the pain of others gives himself out of love for them”, brothers and friends of Honduras and the world, many times we do not understand the designs of God and why he allows all this, but one thing is true, it is in these moments where God arouses and activates in each person of good will the incessant desire to serve and best of all, without expecting anything in return».
