Story

This is for my Uncle Rob, one of life's good guys, who has been through the most horrendous time over the last few years.
Years ago during the Bosnian war he set up a charity to take medical equipment & supplies, baby milk, food & dog food to help the civilians & animals. He put himself in danger so many times, where he could have easily have been killed, just to help innocent people. He has saved lives & helped to put a smile on the faces of orphaned children. He brought over a teenage Bosnian refugee & helped him to receive a prosthetic limb. This young man says that our Uncle Rob is his hero.He did several trips out there taking aid & received a letter from the Pope thanking him for his charity work. But needless to say the person that left us was not the same person who returned & has suffered with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for as long as I can remember & still struggles to talk about his experience. Then few years ago he had an accident at work where he fell down a manhole which hadn't been covered properly & injured himself sonbadly could no longer work & now walks with crutches. His court case for compensation was handled pretty badly & he only received £10,000. This didn't cover what he used to earn. He has struggled to walk for so long, it's painful to watch. For years he has had to fight with the local council to move to a ground floor flat, which he moved into this year & despite his discomfort things were looking up. But now he's had an infection in his leg which has now resulted with his leg having to be amputated. He has just come of if surgery as I write this & doesn't know I've set this up. Being with his dogs & driving is his life. We are all so upset that he has gone through all of this. It would mean the world to us if we could raise enough money to be able to buy him an automatic vehicle & perhaps cover the 1st year of costs. I know that doing this for him will give him the motivation he will need for his recovery. Thanks so much.
