Ansis

PHOTO DONATION: Sintija Zīvarte


This story is difficult to begin. Mainly because I realise it could happen to anyone and no one would be able to answer why it happened exactly to them?! And probably it is of no use to seek answers; one rather has to think how to live on…

Ansis is 22 years old and he currently lives with his mother in Veclaicene. From the window, across the field they can see the Estonian border. He lives with mother because of a terrible accident that tool place in November last year – Ansis lost both legs at his workplace.

As Ansis and his mother describe the accident, it feels like I’m watching a horror movie and such scenes could be possible only there: a front loader catches the young man and pushes him down. How he was buried in a pile of coal. How he felt the left leg separating from the body and the bones breaking. How, with fear of being buried completely, he raised his hand and how finally someone noticed that there is a person under the black pile of coal…

Hospital, pain, shock, leg amputation, fear... When all that was already behind and Ansis was returned home, the family realised that the life needs to be built from scratch again: adapting the room for Ansis’ needs, looking up information on what a man left without his legs can do and where and how the life will be from now on!?
There is no choice but to accept what has happened. Yet the bitterest thing is that the state does not care about what happens to people involved in similar accidents.

Would anyone be able to survive on 45 lats per month? The medicines and vitamins that Ansis currently has to use cost 70 lats alone, each change of bandages costs 3 lats plus the cost of transport to the doctor. More than 350 lats have been paid for the hospital treatment, there will be further rehabilitation and adaptation costs and the list goes on.

Thankfully, Ansis has a fantastic family, friends and neighbours who are selflessly prepared to help and look for the ways to help him. Thanks to everyone who has already donated and those who continue to.

The family is currently trying to bring legal action against the employers and Ansis should receive compensation. That, however, will take some time.

Despite all, the family keeps an optimistic outlook and is set to fight for their rights, adapt to the situation they have found themselves in and to look for funding for the expensive prostheses.

Ansis currently is looking for companions and information on how to accept the circumstances and survive...

What Ansis needs:
- Electric wheelchair
- Help with adaptation of the house and bathroom for people with movement impairment
- Money for medicines and vitamins (at least 70 lats per month now)
- Information about prostheses is currently being researched.

Let’s help!

August 2012

The operation for Ansis was partly paid for the donated amount 2230,57 LVL.


Spring, 2012


Ansis has received the wheel-chair assigned by the state. At the moment he is waiting for the information about the prosthesis here in Latvia, also are searching the possibilities to meet the specialists abroad. A computer, monitor, programs were purchased for Ansis- for the total amount of 467.99 LVL. Many thanks to the computer company CAPITAL for the special price!


July, 2012

On the 2nd of July Ansis is going to Berlin for the operation. We paid for the airtickets- the total amount of 390,10 LVL. We keep our fingers crossed so that everything goes successfully!


September, 2012

Ansis is waiting for the state paid prosthesis so that he can start walking again. We are glad that Ansis now got a specially equipped car  and now he can travel himself without the help of a driver.
