Save Sergiy Kelshev

Organized by: Chris Walker

Chris' Photo


Sergiy is a freelance photographer who was exploring Vietnam. His group encounter a rogue truck on a two lane road; the driver entered into Sergiy's lane and Sergiy was not able to avoid the truck and was hit dead-on being dragged 40 meters under the front bumper.  If you know what it's like driving in Vietnam many bus and truck drivers don't obey basic rules and many people like Sergiy are seriously injured due to their lack of safe driving skills.  I am compelled to help my fellow Ukranian countryman for his sake and to speak out against all the irresponsible drivers in Vietnam.  Please help him and help me educate people about the dangers one faces on Vietnamese highways.


I am creating this fundraiser to help Sergiy to have proper medical treatment and to get back to normal life. Unfortunately, his medical insurance expired just 1 month before his accident. He was operated 4 times in Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh city hospitals in Vietnam before being safely transferred to Bumrungrad hospital in Bangkok, Thailand. In Bangkok, he has had further surgeries to clean his large wound. The fracture of his right thigh was also restabilised. In the long term he will need further plastic surgery.
Any kind of donation would help his cause. 100% of these proceeds will go to Sergiy Kelshev. Please find it in your hearts to help him!

Я знаю, как водят во Вьетнаме, и как легко можно стать нелепой жертвой местных водителей. Желаю Сергею скорейшего восстановления. 3 years ago

I am donating because my friend Maxim is spending his time and energy to help Sergiy and support Maxim's effort. I know what it is like driving on Vietnamese highways and I hope that Maxim and his effort helps Sergiy and helps bring awareness to the lack of education Vietnamese drivers have. I hope that Sergiys story makes the news and raises awareness regarding irresponsible drivers putting everyone on the road in danger. 3 years ago
