Get Saitcan home

On the 6th December 2017 my brother saitcan had a accident in Chiang Mai Thailand. He and two friends had rented bicycles to explore where they were staying. As they were going down hill he lost control of his bicycle and fell into a two foot ditch. His friends were luckily with him and found him within seconds of the fall, his bicycle was found 2 meters away in the soil. Thanks to bystanders, especially an exparamedic who just happened to be there they were able to get emergency services to him immediately. They took him to Chiang Mai Ram hospital, where he has had several scans, CT scans, MRs and x rays. It was found that he has a broken wrist, a punctured lung, fluid on his lungs but most seriously he has damaged several vertebrae and broken at least 1, the doctors have said the broken vertebrae has damaged his spinal cord and that there is only a small chance of him ever walking again. He has had the fluid drained from his lungs and is due to have surgery on his spine on Saturday 9th December, his doctors will not let him travel until they know both his lungs and his spine are stable. His travel insurance will only cover 30.000 Euro which at the minute looks like it will be enough to cover the hospital expenses, but it means that we, his family, will need to pay for a medivac to take him home to Ireland where he will be able to receive treatment, the cost we have been given is £45.000. We need help to raise these funds so we can give the best possible chance of walking again and bring him home to his family. Our mother is currently there by his side.

My brother Kemal will be acting as the beneficiary in Ireland enabling us to withdrawn the funds on behalf of our brother Sait Can and sending it to him.
