She mentioned that for the past couple of months, between her and her husband, they have been sending $200 per week to her father who was recommended dialysis in Honduras, where he lives. She told me that last week, she pawned her little jewelry to get $50 loan to make up the shortfall as she did not have the entire $200 for that week.
I look at her two kids and wonder what she should do. Given her lack of education and other skills, I doubt she can ever make enough to have $200 to spare each week and take care of her own kids and herself. She is, as understandable, very emotional about her dad. Her other sibling is a 13 year old brother, so she has no other help.
I feel I should give her some advice, but really do not know how to, or what would be the right advice. For the moment, I do nothing, which is the easiest thing to do.
What will you tell her/me?
