The story is all too familiar however the impact of road accidents abroad on friends and family back home cannot be underestimated.

After spending some time in China 39 year old Chris Moulds from York in the UK moved to Thailand last year with his wife Alice and their two young children, Nicholas 5 and 17 month old Isobel. On March the 27th he was involved in a horrific motorbike accident in Pattaya and remains in a coma. With no health insurance his family has no way of getting him home. With medical costs mounting his family are now appealing for help to raise the thirty thousand pounds needed to get him back to the UK. Sixteen thousand pounds has already been raised.

Chris MouldsChris’s mother, Sandra Harper, 63, is currently in Thailand with the family. She clings to the hope that his wife and children, who do not have British passports can also be taken to the UK so they can be of support to Chris on his long road to recovery.

In a post on the Please Help Bring My Son Home From Thailand page it seems that Christopher is doing his bit and showing positive signs each day such as moving his head and mouth and responding to voices, he has even shed a few tears.

Anybody who has lived in Thailand for any significant amount of time will have read stories like this one on countless occasions, and no matter how many distraught families find themselves in this situation and no matter how many times these horrific accidents make the headlines, tragedies like this happen time and time again. It is important to remember that while some may view these kinds of accidents and lack of insurance as bad decisions on the part of the victim, it cannot be allowed to detract from the help each individual family need.
