What's the plan?

As Adam's time is Korea is coming to a close, this incident will make coming home increasingly difficult.  Adam may have to spend the next several weeks to months in a wheelchair. His family back home plan to:

- Send 1-2 family members to assist in packing up his apartment
- Provide basic living assistance
- Mailing his items home
- Helping Adam through the airport and on the airplane

What are our challenges?

Having 2 broken legs makes packing up life pretty darn challenging. There is only a short window between Adam finishing his teaching and the expiration of his work visa. A ton of work is required like making a bank transfer, mailing 5 years of possessions and traveling.

What are we using the funds for?

The goal is to assist in the cost that changed due to the medical condition.

-
The first allocation of donations will go to sending a family member or two. As of this writing the cost is exactly $4,172. Unfortunately for our situation the 2018 Olympics sent the prices of all flights skyrocketing.
$4,172

- From the airport the family support member will travel by bus to his location
$100

- A wheelchair for the airplane travel for Adam 
$751.08

-
Incidentals expenses related to having to travel with 2 broken legs
$250

-
Upgrading Adam's seat during the flight for extra leg room. 
$1,600

Total needed help: $6,378.08
