My Lucky Weekend

in Muscat

What a weekend full of good fortune I could pass on.  On Saturday Jojo Bird of ‘What’s Happening Muscat, Oman?‘ tagged me to say that I had just won a great prize of an HTC phone from eSaver in Muscat- the first prize I’ve won in soooo many years living in Oman. JoJo had told the group the day before about a Philipino teacher who had just died of cancer leaving 6 young children without a parent. So I thought my good luck might help them if the phone was ‘monetized’, JoJo agreed and it was put up for auction through the group. The highest bidder was Vishali Das, a MidWife at a hospital near where the Philipino lady taught. So tonight – eSaver delivered the prize to my home, thanks Farhan;

and I in turn was able to deliver the phone to Vishali,


to whom BIG thanks – and also to all the other people who bid. The money was put into the account to help the orphaned children by fantastic Bank Dhofar app. If any one else wants to help the orphans, contact JoJo on the group ‘What’s Happening Muscat, Oman?
