Hi friends, family, fellow travellers and possibly a few kind strangers too!
Im Jonathan Dunne (Jonny) from Letterkenny, Ireland. Let me tell you a little about my story;
13 months ago i decided to quit my 9-5 office job and presue my dream of travelling. I wanted to see all the beautifiul places the world had to offer, experience many different cultures and have fun with likeminded travellers along the way.
On the 29th March 2016 i left Ireland alone with a one way ticket and since then have explored many amazing places such as Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia as well as voulenteering with abandoned animals on a ranch in Antalya, Turkey and helping teach english to children in Borneo!
In October 2016 my trip brought me to a magical little town called Vang Vieng in Laos. I fell in love and decided i would stay for a little while.
On the 29th of March just a few weeks ago my adventure turned into a nightmare in a matter of seconds when i was involved in a motorbike accident with a Tuk Tuk and another 16 year old motorbike driver who sadly passed away in hospital a few days after the accident. Luckily i was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash which i do belive saved my life.
I suffered several broken bones in my right leg and substantial loss of skin as well as a broken shoulder. I have also lost all movement and power in my right arm which is possibly liked to nerve damage which may be permenant.
I would really appreciate any help that can be given to bring me back home to Ireland, help with medical costs and legal fees here in Laos and also for specilast treatment for my arm when i do return home and aftercare such as physical therapy.
I am blessed to have wonderfull friends here in Laos looking after me, but ultimately i need to come home as soon as possible to seek proper medical treatment in Ireland.
Any donation large or small would be much appreciated in helping with my recovery or even just a simple share on your Facebook page.
Thank you so much guys!
