Charline Edwards from Great Britain went on a dream vacation to the Cape Verde Islands. However, her journey ended in a tragedy that has been haunting the 24-year-old for a long time. He has not only health problems, but serious financial problems.
The 24-year-old was spending time on the beach with her boyfriend when it became dangerous. While bathing, the sea pulled her in to a distance of 20 meters from the shore, then threw her out so that the woman hit the bottom.. She ended up with severe spinal nerve injuries, which left her with paralysis of her limbs.
Charline couldn’t return home, so she was forced to stay in hospital on the island. Unfortunately, the couple forgot to buy travel insurance because they bought their tickets at the last minute. When the woman received the bill for treatment, she grabbed her head – To return home, the British woman needs 38,000. pounds for an air ambulance and as much as 10,000. pounds to cover the costs of hospital stay.

The 24-year-old recalls that there was no indication that bathing could be so dangerous. The flags were green and the water was quite calm. She, however, did not submerge deeply and kept swimming until the water reached her waist.
We had a really bad experience in the hospital. We are worried that if we can’t get her home, her injury could be long-term because there is no MRI on the island, so we can’t see how extensive the nerve damage is.

The 24-year-old’s partner’s mother, Julie, organized a fundraiser to help Charline and her son return to the country and undergo necessary treatment. This is not possible without a specially prepared air ambulance that will transport the 24-year-old safely to Great Britain. Unfortunately, the British Embassy and the travel agency refused to help the woman.
Cape Verde lacks the professional equipment needed to treat Charline. Her partner’s family has already collected over PLN 14,000. pounds to cover the costs of treatment and transport of the sick woman to the country. You can support the collection here.
