Laszlo worked as a self-employed lorry driver and during a delivery to France, on the 6th November, he felt really unwell. He went to a hospital where he was put on oxygen immediately, later found out he is Covid-19 positive but we weren’t aware of the severity of his condition just yet. He was still able to text us the next morning but eventually those messages stopped and later that day we received a call from the hospital that he had to been sedated and put on a ventilator. As time went by he only got worse… kidney failure, 40+ °C temperatures and his condition is still only getting worse. He spent a month and a half in sedation, is currently awake but the ventilator is the only thing keeping him alive. He’s not been able to regain movement in his body or the ability to speak since and as his lung is so damaged he’s constantly battling with infections, that are becoming more and more difficult to treat. Although they have been able to keep him stable his recovery is not guaranteed and so far, he’s only been getting worse. He’s alone, can’t communicate with anyone and his family is devastated that they can’t visit him due to lack of funds and travel restrictions.
European Health Insurance doesn’t cover the full cost of treatment, his family has to pay a daily fee as well as for scans and treatments he needs which aren’t covered by the insurance. He was the main income earner of the family, but that weight is now on his wife who works as a public area cleaner for a hotel and earns minimum wage. They have not been able to pay rent for the last 4 months, can barely afford to pay his medical bills and other bills on top.
We need to save our precious friend’s life, or at least buy him time so the hospital can do their best to help him recover and get him back to his family who miss him very much. The pandemic has been difficult for all, so any help is appreciated. Getting the word out, or a small donation would help Laszlo and his family during this difficult time. Every penny counts.
Laszlo is a devoted husband and father, a very hard-working man who would do anything for his family and help anyone in need of it. Now he’s the one in need of help.
Thank you for your time and your help, Anett, Tamara and Timea.
