This is an emergency -- esta es una emergencia

ESTA ES UNA EMERGENCIA. AYUDANOS A SALVAR UNA VIDA.
---
THIS IS AN EMERGENCY. HELP US SAVE A LIFE.
(English Translation Below)

Durante mi viaje por el mundo me ha tocado conocer gente increíble, amigable y que siempre va a estar dispuesto a ayudar cuando lo necesitas.
En Egipto conocí a los Skull Pharaos MC Egypt(www.facebook.com/skullpharaosmcegypt) que tienen base en el balneario de Hurgada. Todo el club me recibió de una manera que ahora es difícil olvidar los buenos momentos. La última noche me hicieron sentir casi parte de ellos.

Sabri(www.facebook.com/sabry.spmcegypt) es miembro de ese MC y mientras leen esto, su vida corre peligro y tiene un destino incierto.
Hace 2 noches Sabri perdió el equilibrio en la terraza de un tercer piso y cayó al vacío. Su novia y una amiga lo alcanzaron a contener durante 20 segundos antes de perder su fuerza.

Su estado de salud es crítico y las siguientes horas son cruciales para salvarle la vida.

Tiene dos hemorragias cerebrales, y un brazo, pierna y cadera rotas. Ahora sigue vivo bajo un coma inducido. Los miembros del club han hecho un inmenso esfuerzo para costear el hospital pero se están viendo sobrepasados por los gastos e incluso para que lo sigan atendiendo.

A cada uno de ustedes les estoy pidiendo un favor personal para salvar a Sabri. Les pido que se acuerden de todas aquellas personas mágicas que conocieron durante sus viajes. Aquellos que los ayudaron, los alimentaron y quizás los albergaron en su casa sin pedir nada a cambio.

Aquellos rostros sin nombre que marcaron un momento y que crearon recuerdos que aún viven en sus mentes.

COMO AYUDAR
Desde Chile.
Depositar en la Cuenta RUT (BancoEstado) 8.186.285-0 y enviar el mail de confirmación de depósito a sabri@aroundtheglobe.cl

Desde todo el mundo.
Opción 1.
Depositar en la cuenta corriente Karina Sadovnichenko (www.facebook.com/karina.sadovnichenko la novia de Sabri).
Nombre: Karina Sadovnichenko
Cuenta Número: 061-007001-017
Sucursal: HSBC Egypt Hurghada
Swift code:EBBKEGCX

Opción 2.
Hacer transferencia via WESTERN UNION para Nico Lothring(www.facebook.com/nico.lothring) que también es miembro de los Skull Pharaos y recibirá/canalizará los dineros recaudados. WU exige una "Pregunta secreta" y una "Contraseña".
Por razones obvias no puedo publicar esos datos aquí pero les pido por favor que me envíen un mensaje por FB para entregarles esos datos. Yo estoy 100% involucrado con esta causa y responderé inmediatamente.

Finalmente solo les puedo decir que cualquier aporte va a en pos de salvar la vida de Sabri.

Desde ya les agradezco infinitamente su ayuda y todos aquellos colaboradores serán recordados y mencionados en un futuro post con la actualización del estado de salud de Sabri.

Por favor compartir este post.

Paz,
Cris.

During my trip Around The Globe I met amazing and friendly people that will always be willing to help when you need it.

In Egypt I met the Skull Pharaos MC Egypt(www.facebook.com/skullpharaosmcegypt) which are based at Hurghada. The whole club greeted me in a way that is now hard to forget the good times. The last night made me feel almost part of them.

Sabri(www.facebook.com/sabry.spmcegypt) is a member of the MC and as you read this, his life is in danger and has an uncertain destiny.

2 nights ago Sabri lost his balance on a terrace of the third floor of a building and fell over the rail. His girlfriend and a friend could managed to hold him for 20 seconds before losing strength.

His health condition is critical and the next few hours are crucial to save his life.
He has two brain hemorrhages, a broken arm, leg and hip. He's still alive under an induced coma. Club members have made a huge effort to cover the hospital bills but are being outweighed by the costs and even to keep him in at the hospital.

To each of you I am asking a personal favor to save Sabri. I ask you to remember all those magical people you met during your travels. Those who helped you, fed you and perhaps housed you at their homes without asking anything in return.

Those nameless faces that marked a moment and created memories that still live in your minds.

HOW TO HELP
Option 1.
Make an e-transfer to Karina´s account (www.facebook.com/karina.sadovnichenko (Sabri's girlfriend).
Name: Karina Sadovnichenko
Account Number: 061-007001-017
Branch: HSBC Egypt Hurghada
Swift code: EBBKEGCX

Option 2.
Make a transfer via WESTERN UNION to Nico Lothring(www.facebook.com/nico.lothring) who is also a member of Skull Pharaos and he will receive/channel the money collected. WU requires a "Secret Question" and "Password".

For obvious reasons I can not post the info here but I ask you to please send me a message via FB so I will reply that information to you. I am 100% involved with this cause and I WILL respond immediately.

Finally I can only tell you that any contribution will pursue lifesaving Sabri.

I deeply appreciate your help and please share this post as much as you can. Those contributors will be mentioned on future post regarding the health state of Sabri.

Peace,
Cris.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
