The man in the hut supplied the boys with food, water, and an opportunity to rest. He urged the boys to soak their injured feet in the ocean water, noting that it would heal their pain and prevent tetanus. Kind and solicitous, the man gave the boys safety and time to heal. He gave them what they needed most and asked no questions.
