This week, while in Africa on humanitarian aid, Paula was in a terrible accident while riding in a taxi. She suffered severe wounds to both legs and is in a very difficult situation as she must now find a way to be transported to Paris for surgery and recovery and then back home for more recovery and therapy. The expense will be tremendous, even with the travel insurance that she was prepared with.

*Updated information: Paula is now in Paris and the doctors determined the damage to the bones and soft tissue to be too severe and had to amputate both legs at the knees.

Those who know Paula, know well the years and years of tremendous heartache and trials she has had to endure, including the deaths of 2 husbands and a son. To those who do not know her, this accident only pales in comparison to all she has been through the last 15 years.
