Urgent help needed

https://www.gofundme.com/f/xzb5q-bri...cp+share-sheet

Can any one help donate a little or a lot to help this British lady who had a serious accident recently in Alanya. Sadly she was uninsured and the hospital is kicking her out even though she is paralysed. It beggers belief. Please read the story. I have been following her story on our Alanya face book and the Expats have been amazing. Please help if you can. Her name is Susan. More info on the go fund page. Or more info on Facebook Alanya expats.

Yes its just awful. For me it's the first thing I do (insurance ) and even then I always doubt and panic in case something happens because they often don't want to pay put. It seems in this case it was forgotten. I know that can easily happen as a friend of mine did the same thing (forgot) and it was only after a chat that she said 'omg I forgot my insurance '. Luckily all was well. But its just so important.
I suspect a lot of people will just say 'serves her right' but I think this is time when humans should show some solidarity . Many are showing solidarity and are trying to help...Europeans too are helping which is heartwarming.

Re: Urgent help needed

Did they use a credit card to pay for the holiday? Very long shot but just might be some mileage in trying a claim.

Re: Urgent help needed

OK I am going to ask the question.
Why didn't this individual have travel insurance?
Once we know the answer people might be more inclined to help.
If people just refuse to take personal responsibility for their actions ( or inaction in this case) do they think never mind we'll try crowd funding.
My travel insurance costs an arm and a leg, shall I just forget or say I won't bother?
I have sympathy for the fact she has had an accident, am I going to "crowd fund" no sorry I am not.
Wrong message, I'll skip it and let others pick the bill up.
You can call me heartless or whatever, I take personal responsibility for my life. You are travelling to a foreign country, must have checked your passport and got a visa.
When you buy your ticket there are constant pop ups to buy travel insurance but you forgot.
Sorry you rolled the dice.

In many ways I agree Bramidan. After reading about this on Facebook last night I asked my daughter her opinion on the crowdfunding aspect. She said she thinks its ok and I wonder if its a generational thing as I went on to tell my daughter that if something similar happened to me I wouldn't want her to do that. To be completely honest before I married I had lived here for several years with no medical insurance in the full knowledge that I was taking that chance and that if something terrible did happen to me i'd have to possibly use all my savings to pay for treatment etc. BUT I wouldn't have done that if I hadn't had the money myself to pay for it.
However, my heart does go out to the lady involved and her family.
I saw a tv program about UK hospitals treating foreigners that dont qualify for free NHS treatment and trying to bill them afterwards, many many of them never pay the bill, they just return to their own country and refuse to pay, one of them was actually Turkish. I cant decide which is worse, treating them and the NHS losing even more money to treat British citizens or discharging them as they are saying here that will do this woman.

Re: Urgent help needed

Yes, there are conflicting feelings, irritation at the lack of foresight and planning, and compassion for a fellow human in an awful situation.
Thinking about it, I've come to the conclusion that if we can afford to travel and live abroad, and perhaps keep a second home, a fiver is little or nothing to our finances. If enough of us think like that it could be enough to help get her home.

PS Have just looked at the website and would like to raise these points.
What about the insurance company for the vehicle that hit her? They should be facing a claim.The traffic police should be able to help.

Re: Urgent help needed

Crowdfunding for holidaymakers with health insurance issues in Turkey seems to be quite popular at the moment. Here's another one from this week...the insurance are refusing to pay out because the lady allegedly didnt disclose she had a lung condition.

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/w...lling-17023706

I know of people who do not disclose everything to the insurance company because "it would be too expensive."
However, as many find out, when the insurance company refuse to pay it is even more expensive than a loaded premium.

Re: Urgent help needed

The wherefores & the whys are a BTW, all cancelled out by just by looking at the poor woman's predicament.
FFS folks, sling a few quid in the pot, have we not all made dangerous & stupid mistakes along the way.
The woman needs to be back here...…..jeeez how desperate.
I wish her & all her family and friends well.
