Appeal by Salavat Rakhmetov for his daughter Zaila


Following a serious accident to his daughter Zaila, the Russian climber Salavat Rakhmetov has launched an appeal to the entire climbing community.

We've published below an appeal sent to us by Russian journalist Anna Piunova who recounts the terrible accident which happened to the 5 year old daughter of Salavat Rakhmetov, the extremely strong Russian climber and 2005 Bouldering World Champion. More than a week has passed since the accident and young Zaila is still in coma and needs further expensive treatment, which the family cannot afford. Here is the letter and the transfer details for those who wish to help the Rakhmetovs.

Appeal by Anna Piunova
"A dreadful accident happened about a week ago in Turkey with Zalia, the daughter of Salavat Rakhmetov. Salavat was leading belayed by his wife when a huge block of rock fell down directly onto their 5 year old daughter. At present she is still unconsciousness,  in intensive care in a Turkish hospital and has has pulled through four surgeries (amputation of hand, a big toe has been reattached, broken arm and a leg) but she needs one more delicate operation to remove the damaged fragments of her skull which are lodged in her brain. Currently the doctors are waiting for the swelling in her brain to subside to allow the operation
The problem is that her medical insurance ends on 28/05/2010 and she is not transportable because of the injuries. Hospitalization may last from two weeks to a month. And the cost (without surgeries) will be approximately $74,000. The rent of a special  aircraft to transport Zalia home is about $49,000. She needs $123,000.
I am attempting to coordinate donations, but the situation is not easy. Thank you for your generosity and take care. Anna Piunova"
