According to the GoFundMe website:

 

As far as I can tell, GoFundMe can be used for whatever you want - it's up to the person creating their page to try and persuade people that their cause is worth donating to.

please help me ….  please set the Go fund me up for my situation …

I don't see any evidence of surgery, it doesn't say broken bones.

More like stitches and road rash from the looks of the bandages.

From an earlier post:

 

Quote

the young bride suffered a head injury and deep cut to her leg, which could have become inflected, in the accident.  Her wound, which went right down to the bone needed invasive surgery to remove dead tissue. The husband also needed the same procedure on his knee.

Needed £6675 for the hospital. I wonder how much they just spent on their wedding? 

Most travel insurance policies state only 50% pay-out if motorcycle is involved.

Why is she still Ms Harrison? Just wondering. 

Must have spent a bundle as they could not afford the same last name

OK.  so let them keep the passports.  Go to the embassy and say you lost your passport, get a temporary travel home passport document and leave?  Or will they physically bar and block them at the hospital door from leaving?  Still, a couple can't come up with 6k of money?  Can't ask friends or family?  No savings?  No credit card cash advance?  getting pretty amazed at the low level of finances so many travelers seem to have, or at least claim so.

No but some medications, doctor's time, cat scan or MRI or x-rays for sure, hospital over night stays..  it adds up even if not necessarily severe.  Some broken toes since they were probably wearing those fine motorcycle riding safety shoes known as Flip Flops!

Because that's a choice she has!

Probably still Ms Harrison because she used her existing passport prior to being married?  Probably did not change the passport yet between the time of getting married and going on the honeymoon, same for driver license?

The new policy, which will reportedly cost just 20 baht for 30 days cover is expected to be rolled out before the end of the year.

Great!.... That means those of us who are retired in this country may expect to get coverage for 240 Bt. per annum?
