Getting Abakoran Home

After years of not going back home, our father, Abakoran was on vacation in Ethiopia. He suffered from a heart attack, which landed him intensive care in Ethiopia. And in the interim, has suffered from multiple organ failures.

We are raising money to get him back home to the United States. There are also a lot of medical costs currently in his critical state required to be paid up front for treatment.

Because he is in a critical state, he needs to be medically evacuated and this is very costly. He will need medical equipment and medical staff to take the flight back. 

Our father is fighting to live. We need the funds as soon as possible to get him back. We appreciate any donations to help cover these costs.
