Family grateful for viewer?s help

Story PictureOn Friday we brought you the touching story of fifty-one year old Socorro Castillo and her eleven year old son Gabriel. The single parent family has been struggling to live a normal life after the mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Tonight however, we have been encouraged by a number of pledges of help we have received, mostly from our international internet viewers.

But it was a Belizean who really came through bigtime today. The anonymous donor left an envelop with two hundred dollars at Channel Five and today I had the pleasure to present it to the family. They are extremely thankful.

If you can help the Castillo family in anyway possible you can contact Socorro Castillo at phone number 663-5692.
