A Sad Story from the Dump

One of the people I’ve met at the Tegucigalpa dump is a 17 year-old girl named Fany. She is a very outgoing teenager who has become close friends with Marc & Terri Tindall. When they feed at the dump, Fany is good at crowd control and sometimes helps serve or hand out water.

Fany does not live at the dump, but works there every day sifting through garbage to find a few recyclables to sell so that her family can eat. Fany’s house is tin and wood and maybe 16 x 16, with fifteen living there.

Fany has a baby, but doesn’t bring the baby to the dump. Marc has told many of the young mothers at the dump, “If you won’t bring your babies out here to the dump, I’ll help you buy milk for them.” I’ve watched Fany, and other young mothers, load up in the back of Marc’s pickup, where he takes them into town to buy milk for their babies (part of where our dump fund money goes).

This past week when the group went to the dump to feed, they heard Fany had been hurt over the weekend. She had been hit by a car and stabbed 3 times. Fany is in terrible shape and only has a 50/50 chance of living. When Marc went to see her, he asked her what happened, and she just cried.

Pray for Fany, a young teenage dump girl, as she fights for her life.

On a happier note…

I heard from Terri Tindall this week and she gave me an update on the Dump Fund. Everyone has done a GREAT job sending in their Dump Day pledges and at last count $29, 344.00 had come in.  That’s not even counting the matching $25000.00 pledge from Bread for a Hungry World. That puts the total at $54,344.00 to help with the Dump Ministry. Thank you for supporting the Honduras Dump Project.

    I will be going to the dump on Wednesday. I can only imagine what I will witness. I have to admit, I am a little nervous.

    • Trey Morgan says:

      Tonya … you’ll do great. Keep an open mind and heart. Allow yourself to be affected by the dump. But I’ll be honest with you, there are now words I can use to describe it fully, you just have to experience it.

      Blessings and prayers.
