We want to get the word out about a NZ teacher hospitalized in Busan. He has a rare blood type, 0 negative, and needs a liver transplant to survive. His family cannot afford the 40 to 50 million won estimated cost of the operation. Native Speaking English Teachers here in Miryang, SK, along with many Korean friends are trying to raise the necessary funds. His brother arrived last night from NZ and is a potential donor. He is going to the hospital this morning to speak with the doctors and be tested for donor suitability. You can find all the details here...
This is not a one time event, we will keep going with donations and various events until Mick gets the help he needs!
Our friend and colleague needs our help. Michael Milne has been teaching in Miryang, South Korea for the past five years.
He is currently in a Busan hospital awaiting an organ transplant. His blood type is the rarest, O neg, which is making it more difficult.
Unfortunately, the help he needs from the powers that be, is not being given. The insurance we are provided with as foreign teachers, does not give this coverage, and his family is not able to get the full cost together in time.
Please help us raise as much of the necessary $40,000 that we can, in time to help save our friend's life.
Thank you for helping out in any way that you can!
