Concerns growing for a little girl and her father in Koh Samui

KOH SAMUI: -- Today the Samui Times have received a letter from a concerned member of the Koh Samui community who told us “A few days ago my house keeper took in this guy and his daughter unfortunately, it sounded like he was being unkind to her. When our housekeeper expressed her concern and then the man suddenly left.

I’ve just posted it up on community on line. Since then the man has been seen in Bandon hospital as his daughter had a bad injury on her leg, it was infected.

He had no money and left without any treatment. I’m now really concerned for this little girl. Can you help spread the word. “ From comments made on the Samui Online Community Pinboard it seems the man is from the UK, his daughter has a Thai mother.

He is known to frequent the Bangrak area. It is thought he may have problems with substance abuse and one poster suggested that he was seen in the Lamai area. If you see this man or this little girl please contact [email protected] and please share this post among the community.

What qualifications are required to pay a hospital bill? I have not in any way been judgmental, I have made no assumptions as to why this situation has occurred, I am making no half baked prophecies

You have only heard he may have a substance abuse problem and you are ready to crucify the guy. Apparently, he is taking care of his/someone's daughter; perhaps the best he can. I suggest you try to h

If someone locates the girl and she has need, PM me and I will arrange for free care for her for outpatient needs. I cannot manage inpatient care if required but I can arrange the doctor's fees in or

The way I know Thai people, I cant imagine they wouldn't be willing in some clinic or hospital to help the girl for free, if the guy has no money. Not such a big deal (I hope) to clean and disinfect the wound, and bandage it, maybe antibiotics. Or maybe somebody could volunteer to foot the bill. Hope she gets help speedily, infections develop rapidly in this climate.

The government hospital in Nathon would help. The private hospitals on Samui will kick you out on the street.

No they won't.

It is law that all hospitals have to provide emergency treatment to Thais FOC if the patient is in 'one of the medical schemes'. I have seen quite a few Thais being treated under this edict - but follow up care is an entirely different matter.

The problem with the little girl might be if she has no Thai id.

Poster is correct - Nathon hospital will probably help no matter what.

This could be my projection, but I get the sense that this guy is peddling the little girl to take advantage of sympathy from strangers. If he's a down-and-out drug-addict, then she's his meal-ticket and he will not part with her without a fight. The situation is analogous to a parasite attached to a host rather than a father's love for his daughter. Separating the two will likely require the authorities or a baseball bat. Again, this could be my projection.
