Support Agnes in her road to recovery.
Agnes is a victim of a brutal assault during her travels in Spain. We would like to fundraise for her and her family during these times.Auckland
A beautiful friend of ours, Agnes, was the victim of a brutal assault at her hostel whilst traveling alone in Malaga, Spain. She has no memory of the event, but witnesses at the hostel say she was hit over the head and kicked.
She has a serious head injury, with skull fracture, brain bleeding and clots. She has been recovering each day, and is now regaining some of her sass and stubbornness!
Over the last week, her family have flown from Auckland to be by her side while she ticks the boxes before being transferred to London for further recovery and rehab (if insurance allows it).
Her family, alongside in helping with Agnes's recovery, have also been working alongside Police in Spain, NZ Embassy (who have been a massive support), as well as her travel insurance.
We have set up this Givealittle Page as a way to give back to Agnes for all the times she has given to us and her community during the times they needed support.
She was a St John Youth volunteer during her time in New Zealand where she has impacted so many youth's lives. And she carries on doing this with the fire brigade youth services during her time in London.
Now is the time that Agnes and her family needs all the support from her community and home!
Funds will be used for living and travel expenses (for her family) as well as day to day needs during her recovery and any associated costs that come up. As we know, brain injuries are not always straight forward, and every single dollar will definitely help!
If we can help relieve some stress and financial burden this incident has caused - the goal is achieved!
Erike Ng's involvement (page creator)
Agnes is a dear friend of mine for over 10 years. We met through participating then volunteering together in the St John Youth programme. She has recently toured me through London during my visit a month ago. Alongside that, Agnes is one of the most selfless and open hearted friends I have, I am absolutely devastated this has happened to one of the most beautiful people on Earth.
Use of funds
Funds will be paid to Agnes's younger sister, Chelsea and they will be used for living and travel expenses as well as day to day needs the family and Agnes may incur during her recovery.
Kia ora koutou,
I’m writing this from London where I’m currently resting and recovering. After a difficult 3 weeks in hospital in Malaga, I was finally well enough to be discharged and medically escorted to the UK for further recovery.
My family and I would just like to say a big thank you for everyone’s support. We are truly touched and grateful for your generosity and kindness. It means a lot to us in this difficult time.
It will be a little while longer before I am fit enough to make the journey back to NZ. I know there is still a long path ahead until I will be myself again. But I am grateful for all the support and feel lucky to be alive.
