Help a Marine Rescue His Interpreter
Mikey's wife underwent surgery last night and is stable condition. She will remain in the hospital for the next 4 days.
It was discovered that the surgeon who conducted her C-section 11 weeks ago did not remove the placenta.
Not only does our failed policy to honor our interpreters place them in continuous danger, it leaves their families to rot in third world countries.
1) The president of the company in the Middle East who said he would get Mikey a visa and job has failed to respond to my communications for the past 2 weeks.
2) So far, the money raised has been used to pay for someone to obtain an ID for Mikey's infant son, passports for his wife and son, an apartment for his family (they were sleeping on the floor of his uncle's house), and medical expenses for his wife.
3) After months of pain from her C-section, his wife suffered massive bleeding and was taken to a private hospital. They instructed her that she needed emergency operations on her c-section and vaginal canal. Being a private hospital, they required $800 upfront. Most businesses are closed on Friday, so Mikey was unable to collect the funds I transferred. I have not heard back from Mikey after learning he was unable to pick up the money.
He is in a desperate state and afraid he will have to take care of his son on his own.
