Update: The campaign for Anzi ended early because insurance came through for a lot of the cost. The money collected so far will go towards paying for the hospital room, food, X-rays, rehabilitation and travel expenses for her family and (hopefully not) future surgeries. Anzi spent approximately ten hours in surgery last week and received a total of 2 plates in her arm as well as pins to piece her elbow back together. The doctor said it was a fairly complicated surgery partially because of the time gap while waiting for funding.
Unfortunately, tragedy has struck again in our community in Indonesia. Our friend Anzi Matta was in a motorcycle accident on Wednesday 26 July. Her left arm is severely broken in several places and she desperately needs surgery to repair it. The estimated cost is about 20 million rupiah, approximately $1,500 USD. That is a year’s salary or more here. She needs this surgery urgently and as quickly as possible to save her arm. She will also require physical therapy to regain mobility. We are fundraising here as well, but we need all the help we can get. (more…)
