Ayuda a mi tío a recuperarse de un grave accidente

Mi tío tuvo un accidente el 17 de septiembre de 2020 mientras trabajaba en el jardín de su casa, se cortó la muñeca izquierda con un esmeril lesionando tendones, nervios y vasculatura. Luego de visitar múltiples emergencias de hospitales públicos no logró conseguir cirujano de mano y demás servicios necesarios disponible. Visitó dos clínicas privadas: en la primera lo evaluaron, inmovilizaron y discutieron era necesario llevar a cabo una cirugía debido a las lesiones encontradas; en la segundo consiguió un presupuesto mas económico y fue operado el día 18 de Septiembre de 2020. 

Actualmente en Venezuela la crisis económica afecta cada vez más y a más personas. Mis tíos son profesionales que han trabajado arduamente desde que puedo recordar. Trabajan para mantener y costear la educación de mis primos, así como para cuidar a mi abuela y la mamá de mi tía y costear sus gastos médicos. En los últimos años su trabajo no ha sido suficiente para costear un seguro médico y ahora mucho menos para costear este gasto imprevisto. Con la super inflación y dolarización en Venezuela se hace imposible para cualquier familia poder costear esto

En esta oportunidad te pido nos ayudes con lo que esté dentro de tu posibilidad para cubrir los gastos médicos de mi tío y así pueda continuar su recuperación y recuperar su salud. Mi familia y yo te lo agradecemos infinitamente. Incluyo como soporte el presupuesto de la cirugía, fisioterapia por alrededor de 3 meses (pudiera requerir más) y un poco extra para cubrir medicinas y gasolina (20$/semana) para acudir a las terapias.

Mil gracias!

My uncle had an accident on September 17th this year while working on his garden at home. He cut his left wrist with a saw injuring nerves, tendons and blood vessels. In Venezuela the resources in public hospitals are very scarce, insurance costs are unaffordable for most families and, even having one, there's no warranty it'll cover all of your medical expenses. Inflation has never been higher: prices for something today most definitely will double or triple within  weeks/months.

The day of the accident, my family visited multiple public emergency rooms without success, they couldn't find the appropriate resources/staff, however, it was clear that my uncle was going to need surgery. He ended up visiting two private clinics, at the first clinic his hand has evaluated and immobilized. They gave my uncle a quote of around 7000$ for the surgery. Fortunately, he visited a second clinic where a much affordable quote was given and where he ultimately underwent surgery on September 18th. 

Economic, social and health crisis in Venezuela have never been worse. My aunt and uncle are professionals who have worked arduously for as long as I can remember. They work to provide for my two cousins and their studies, as well as to take care of my grandmother and my aunt's mom and to cover all of their medical expenses. The last few years have been very hard on my family, they can no longer afford medical insurance, can't even imagine to afford these unforeseen medical expenses. Currently, super inflation makes it impossible for almost any working class family in Venezuela. 

I take this opportunity to sincerely ask that you help my uncle with any contribution you see possible, this will allow my uncle to continue his recovery and recover his health. Me and my family greatly appreciate it.

Included: surgery quote, medicine bills, quote for physical therapy for around 3 months (may require more) and gas price (20$/week approximately).

Thank you!

Medical Expenses and other expenses:

Surgery 3000$
Physical therapy 10$/session, 30 sessions + therapist fee = 300 +100 = 400$
Medicines needed so far 35$
Gas needed to go to therapy twice per week = 0.5$/L, ~40L/week = 20$/week = 240$/3 months. 
Again, he may need more therapies and medicines in the future.
