Hi my name is Riona, I'm from Soth Tangerang - Indonesia. I'm a 34yo single parent of a 14yo son and we both lives with my Mom. For the last 2 years I've been working as a Gojek driver for online car transportion. In 2014 I've got a motorcycle accident which injured my right knee. After going to an orthopaedic doctor and did an MRI scan, he said that I ruptured my ligament (ACL). He told me that it's better for me to do the ACL reconstruction surgery, which will cost me around USD5,500 for Class 3 Treatment (lowest treatment class in Jakarta), at that time (it could be more than that now).
All this time I've been trying to save money for my surgery but only manage to have USD2,000 and it's still far from the amount that I needed. The insurance that I have couldn't cover the surgery. After the accident my knee often swollen every time I use it more than I supposed to and sometimes fall down because the bone keeps on moving away since they're not attached properly with missing ligament and it hurts so much. Also with my driving activity is actually hurt my knee.
Maybe with this online fundraiser, some of you might willing to help me and have my knee fix with the surgery I needed. So that I can get back to my activities as normal as possible without having more knee problems.
And beforehand, I'd like to say thank you very much for all of you who willing to help me and hopefully you'll get more kindness and greater things in the world in return.
