This happens this Thursday! Donating your body to medical science in Costa Rica

Following four previous successful donor events, more members of our expat community have expressed the wish to donate their body to medical science in Costa Rica. One again, staff of the Medical school of the University of Costa Rica are willing to come to San Isidro to enable potential donors to complete the paperwork and avoid the journey to San Jose. The visit will take place on Thursday 28 March 2019.

I need your help. I rescued six puppies. They were born in a mountain next to my neighborhood. When I rescued them, they were extremely weak and full of flies...

I bought special food for them and washed them. They have successfully recovered and are now very cute...... They are cute indeed .

Two of the puppies have been adopted but there are four remaining.......If you know of someone who loves dogs, I would really appreciate it.... I can keep these babies no longer. We love these pupies and in case they do not find a home, they will have to stay over here in my house...... thanks so much. Ronald. +506 6291 8530
