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


Recommended Posts

Would he consider moving back to the UK? There may be help for him & his daughter if he has family in UK. I would be happy to act as a go between for him here in UK.

Apparently he is in a lot of trouble around the UK..

Having this kid with a drug addict mother isn't the first bad decision this guy has made im guessing..

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

Poor mite. No child should be left with a pair of useless twonks like that. Do you know if he has any family who might take her in? Presumably they haven't got her Uk passport or anything.

Any clue HOW to actually help the girl directly? Adopting her would be a solution to my mind. Can't think of anything else.

By paying for her medical bills directly, making sure she is healthy and isnt dragged around to all the bars and other type places this guy is often seen at with her..

As far as i see it though, there are many children all over thailand including samui where you can see the kids selling flowers at night that need help, there should be some sort of institution in place to support ALL of them, not just this one..

Usually there is a thai family support structure in place to send these kids to but maybe the mother is without support or has burned bridges there too. The UK family would be the next logical step if they were willing to take her & if the parents were willing to hand her over.

I know my own family would not allow my child to live this way but not everyone is so fortunate. I'm pretty sure there are charities but with one parent at least making show of taking care they very rarely get involved & in many cases the demand outweighs the support & many fall through the cracks.

Very sad all round

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.

My kids have always been treated free in Thailand even without Thai id or passport.

It sounds very unlikely that he has a valid Visa and if that's the case and the authorities become involved, then he may not have any choice.

What would happen to the girl in that case I don't know.

I feel sorry for the child who has been brought up by such irresponsible parents and for Thailand's "No money no treatment" policy; where are their hearts exactly? Too busy worshipping false "Gods"

A fairly innocent story continues to gather moss at some epic speed. Jeez.

Innocent story? Which planet do you come from? Haven't you reaf first hand account of the situation? I honestly do not think we need troll posts in situations like this.

I will be back in KS at the end of the week, if this is a genuine post and the guy does indeed have difficulties in looking after her, then anyone who has some firm info on the circumstances and their whereabouts can contact me directly.

It can be difficult (and sometimes even dangerous) to get too close or involved with another persons issues, no matter how tragic or regrettable. It would seem this may be a case where it is worth taking the risk, so if anyone comes across any new details please keep us all posted (or myself directly)

For what's it's worth....

Bignose, im willing to contribute 5,000 baht to the care of this darling little girl.

Please pm me if we can arrange something .

I wish i could do more, but im on a limited income.

Well done.

There is hope for us yet.clap2.gifclap2.gif
