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.
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!
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.
