Alon's Story - with a difference

Alon was 21 years old with a young wife and 12 month old son. He comes from the island of Malo - just off the island of Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu. After finishing school, he attended VIT (Vanuatu Institute of Technology) and became a mechanic. He was working as a mechanic in Luganville, Santo. His future was looking very bright for him & his lovely young family when a tragedy took it all away from him.
On the morning of December 26th, 2015, he was involved in a motor vehicle accident from which he suffered numerous injuries, the worst of which being  fractured vertebrae. The diagnosis is that - 'he will never walk again'. Very sad news for his wife, family & friends and ourselves who have been helping people here in Vanuatu for almost 6 years. .with the re building of schools, scholarships, and our sponsor a child program.
We started a Go Fund Me fundraiser with the money to be used for his medical expenses and equipment needed eg: wheelchair, special spinal bed, and anything else needed to help his re rehabilitation. 
There is no government assistance or health care cover schemes here in Vanuatu, so the costs have to be met in any way they can, from people that sell pineapples for a living in a 3rd world country!
He was in hospital for a few months, and we were able to collect funds for his discharge so he had the equipment needed when he headed home, and then continuously  for his on going home care ie: physio, doctors visits etc ...
Please help Alon & his family as they face an enormous challenge trying to help Alon to have the best future that he can in an under developed country with no facilities to accommodate the help he requires .
We also raised some funds along with our contribution, to enable us to build a wheelchair friendly house for them to live in..
You can contribute to Alon's ongoing needs here     or contact us to find other ways you can help him & his family.
