    Hope all the best for this young man although I don't know him in person. Let us all do our path and add what we can to his GoFund Me account. We can do this.

    If he was working for someone then its his employers responsibility to cover all medical costs, its in the labour code.
    Was he working for himself or soeone else?
    This is why the NHI is not worth the money taken from our pay checks.

    astonishingly though, the next day right by Todman peak so yards from this accident, we see another truck at up a slope and tilted having a fork lift putting a load of breeze blocks on it. We need to do a lot better with training those who operate taxi, trucks and other large vehicles, enforce proper maintenance and not to mention having basic construction standards that are actually used/enforced.
    that aside, get well Kavin. wishing you the best

    Start with a bush bath. That should cleanse him. Next ensure his medical evaluations and procedures are done over a lit candle in memory of moses.
