Hello to all you kind hearted people out there. Myself Abhishek Patil, a sailor by profession (more about this later) and an artist at heart. Please donate 2 mins of your time to hear my plea. I am originally from Mumbai, India. I passed out as a deck cadet from a marine institue in 2015. However, I was'nt able to secure a placement. Two years later my father took a loan of $3500 to pay as placement fees and was told by the agency I was to join my ship from Vietnam. I reached Ho chi Minh on 6/6/2017. However upon reaching I was kept in a hostel with 15-20 other guys all waiting for placement. Everything was fine for 5 days until one night I woke up breathless and full of sweat. Upon reaching the hospital I was diagnosed with secondary spontaneous Pneumothorax. I had a chest tube placed inside my ribs which is very painful. Its been a month and the lung isnt healing well. The hospital I am admitted to has people smoking everywhere outside my room. The smoke aggravates my condition and i get fits of cough. My mother is very stressed out and has stopped eating. The doctor sent my pic to my family upon seeing my mother collapsed and has suffered a hairline fracture in her right wrist. Indian embassy is ready to arrange an air ambulance for me but they have quoted a price of $16300. It is my humble request to all the kind souls out there to reach out and help in any way possible. Time is of essence. For confirmation I am admitted in Pham Ngoc Thac hospital, saigon.
