To minimize concerns about possible abuse within this forum and regarding donations in general, it is strongly suggested that postings be specific as to who the intended recipient is (by name and a general location of their residence), why they need help (e.g., accident, health crises, earthquake, flood, etc.), what kind of help is needed (e.g., food, clothing, money, furniture, etc.), how and where to deliver the donations/funds, and who and how to contact in case of questions.
Use this forum to inquire about where and how things 'work' or get done in Chiriqui, or for an information source/resource. For example, where to get keys made, where to find Thai food, where to get oriental rugs cleaned, etc. Use this forum for "one off" questions for which you need a resource or quick answer (as opposed to a discussion); use the Miscellaneous forum at the bottom of this forum category for more general topics in which a discussion is more appropriate, as opposed to a quick answer.
This forum is intended for postings of inquiries about things that one ultimately and typically would pay for or engage, and not for advice or general help questions (which more appropriately belong in one of the other topical forums).
This is the forum to use to inquire about rumors and unverified bits of information and "news", aka bochinche to the locals. Topics posted here specifically must be related to life in the Chiriquí Province; the Idle Chatter / Personal Musings forum is available elsewhere on CL for non-Chiriquí related topics.
