Once again i ask the help of the “public” for a crowd funding.
My friends and family knows that I have been to Cambodia around two years ago with the VSO-ICS project. I lived in a host family with 2 Cambodia volunteers that could speak English and help me communicate with the host family. Their names were Vicheka and Vuthy.
This last one could speak little English but he was the hardest worker among us. Since I have left Cambodia I have been in touch with them. I helped Vuthy to apply for a job and by that time, his English had improved a lot just by living and working with British volunteers.
Among us all, he was the oldest one and he already had a wife and a little boy. He was so focused and committed in finding a good job to sustain his family that he managed to get the one we applied for together.
He is a very sensible and proud man, I was surprised when he contacted me few days ago to ask me for money. Him and his wife have been in the hospital for the last month as she is very sick. She needs a simple blood transfusion but she is 0 negative which is a rare type of blood.
I myself was in hospital when I was in Cambodia, but because of my privilege of being European, I was hospitalized in a private hospital for 5 days. Each day the insurance paid 2,000 US dollars to cover the expenses for a total of TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS for 5 days!. If that was not set up for me, I would of died of dysentery in less than 24 hours.Vuthy has contacted me as he has spent already 1200 $ in the past month and he could not afford to take care of his wife any longer. He did not know who to turn to so he asked me as last chance.
He only asked for 300$ for the specific treatment she needs. I am asking you to HELP ME TO HELP HIM!Even a donation of 10 US dollars (about 8 GBP and 9.5 EUR) will contribute to help this extremely sick woman and in a ‘butterfly effect’ will help her whole family to live a better life.
I myself lost my mother due to illness and I know how important money are in this case. Many of you know that I am dedicating my life in helping others as I can. This is a request from the other side of the World, to help someone take care of his wife and save the mother of his child.
Many people daily ask for my help, but this is a different story.
In our Western world, we could spend 250 Pounds, or 300 Euros for a brand new bag or coat or pair of shoes. There with 300 Euros we could help save a life of a mother and wife. I have put the fundraising limit to 500 pounds as few quids more can only benefit him in this hardship. Hopefully together we will make this happen!
Please share this and please, if you can, donate even just a little can make a huge difference.
Help me once again to deliver aid to those who really need it, in the most direct way possible!
I will avoid posting pictures of her on her hospital bed which have been sent to me, instead I only post 2 pictures of the medicine she is been given and few pics of my time there with Vuthy.
Thank you from the deepest of my heart for the continuous support in alleviating the pain that life can give people under all forms.
This time, together we can help someone overcome the unjust health system of their country just through a simple donation or a share!
Thank you so much from me and my Cambodian friends!
The currency is in Pounds as I cannot except Dollars payment. I will change the money when I send them over to him!
