Little girl stranded on another continent

A little girl is stranded in South America, in Buenos Aires, according to DN.se. She got sick when her family was visiting relatives over there and now her insurance is not valid for transport home, according to DN.se. It will cost them 700 000 SEK to get home the little girl. She has gotten a neurological condition called Child epilepsy, DN writes. We can also read that the family has to go in debt in order to get the little girl home. They have been stranded for over a year. So far donations only have given 270 000 SEK out of needed 700 000 SEK. In order to be able to fly home the little girl needs a health care equipped air plane, because she needs a respirator, according to DN.

This could really happen to any family. Something can happen abroad, even if it is a disease inside once body that is not visible when you travel from home. Any disease can erupt when you get abroad. This family was surely unlucky when they wanted to visit their family during child leave.

Do you want to donate? Well, go into the article and use Google translate. It is possible to donate, they have Facebook. If they would get more than needed in donation the article says the family will give the rest of the money to “Save the Children”(Rädda Barnen).
