this is the first time ever I have come into the situation where I need to ask for help from others. Please excuse my English since this is not my mother language.
My name is Dennis, I am 36 years old and father of two boys.
I am asking for help for my father who lives in Bali.
What has happened?
On the evening of the 27th of November my father was on his way home with his scooter. A car was overtaking him and while doing that the car touched my father so he lost control of his scooter. Thank god, he survived and luckily he was wearing a helmet.
Nevertheless he got several serious injuries. The worst have been two broken rips that created a crack in his lung. A broken ankle and thumb. After a couple of days in intensive care and in total two weeks in the hospital he was able to leave the hospital on Friday the 11th of December and is now recovering well at home.
Unfortunately my father is not insured for these kind of costs and the person, causing the accident just drove away.
Maybe he did not notice, maybe he did not care - we probably will never find out.
What am I aiming for?
My father has savings for these kind of incidents - unfortunately, this time, the costs exceed the savings of my father by 7000 EUR.
Actually it is on me, to support my father in the best way possible but I was not able to get into the position yet, to support him now, as I want to do.
Since my father had to grew me all by himself as my mother left us when I was a child - he is all I have and he deserves more from me, than just a couple hundred EUR to support him in this hard times.
So now I am here and ask you for your support if you can.
I want to highlight that this is not a life threatening situation anymore and there are hundreds of more important problems people have around the globe. Especially in 2020.
My father survived, he is recovering well and he will have food for the time he has to pay off the amount but I hope to get a bit together, to ease his situation as much as possible.
Please - if you are struggling yourself in these times - don't donate!
I really want to say thank you, for taking your time to read my story and for considering making a donation
Stay all safe and healthy!
