The Story
6 weeks ago

Hello, my name is Didier and I'm 33 years old.
I moved to Asia 7 years ago after I've lost my whole family, including my mother and my father, in Switzerland from natural causes.
After having been here for a couple of years, working as a diving instructor, I've joined a company working with the military police in Cambodia to protect the forest against deforestation and stop illegal trafficking of animals. In Asia, this business is very popular and common. 

I was on this mission for 3 years in the Caramones mountains to preserve that wonderful natural habitat. My job was to patrol, even under heavy rain, every single days and night because the traffickers never stop to try their best to take those precious things out from the forest in order to sell them at the black market.
We got physical confrontation many times even with the local villagers because they didn't want us to bring their "traffickers friends" to the court.
This is how I got a lot of unfriendly people around me. But I kept believing in my mission to preserve and protect this place of paradise.

On February 21th 2015, during a day off in the capital, around 8.30pm on the way to go to the restaurant to have a dinner with friends, I've mysteriously got into one serious traffic accident 150 meters passed an intersection and, from that moment, my life completely changed to the worst which was even worst that I could have think of...
Luckily, during the accident I didn't lose conscious and I was able to call my friends to help me to find an ambulance and bring me to the hospital. 
I was injured very badly : my shoulder, arm, hips and knee were all broken and my femoral arteria was cut in half with my foot completely wasted.
When I arrived at the local hospital, the doctor decision was to amputate my entire leg. At that moment, I requested to not do it by telling them I had a medical insurance that could cover any required treatment.
I've then been transported by an air-ambulance from Cambodia to Bangkok 4 days after my accident and started to receive a proper treatment as well as surgeries from a specialist.
I had 49 surgeries until now. Now I can't walk long without crutches anymore. Obviously, after this accident I also lost my job.
At this point of my life, I'm not able to find any job and i need go back to my country to request a social support in order to be able to live a decent life.
I've spend all my savings trying to get back on my feet and continue my life in Asia but now I'm forced to go back to Switzerland to get few more surgeries in order to try to fix what's left of my leg and find a new job.

I cannot keep living like this all my life as this handicap is killing my hope and my future.
I have only done physical jobs and army my entire life and now this handicap doesn't allow me to do such job anymore.

Any support is much much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
