Botchie Recovery Campaign

On 09/06/17 my father, Michael Botchie, had an accident while fixing his motorcycle. He lost half of his thumb down past the knuckle on his right hand. Due to the "de-gloving" and lack of clean cut, they were not able to re-attach it. 

As you all know, my Father's work is their main source of income in UY. While the medical expenses are non-existant due to the great healthcare there, his lack of work ability while healing and learning to work with his new nub will set my parents back financially.  

I am trying to raise enough to cover 2 months of expenses for them. This will help them pay rent, buy food and essentials, and let my father rest while his hand heals. This will also help them pay for a car rental as my dad will not be able to ride his moto for awhile.

My parents have always held out a helping hand and open heart and I believe this would be a time that it's returned to them.

Thank you.
