A young charity worker recovers at the hospital after being attacked in a Spanish hostel and left unconscious with a broken skull and brain damage.
Agnes Wong, from Auckland, traveled alone during a dream vacation in the seaside resort of Malaga when she was attacked last week.
Witnesses reported that she had been kicked by her head and repeatedly beaten.
Mrs. Wong was rushed to the hospital with a skull fracture, a cerebral haemorrhage and blood clots.
Good friend Erike Ng has set up a Givealittle page, in which Mrs Wong's family flies to Spain to stand at her side.
Mrs. Wong slowly regained her strength, but the attack remains a haze, according to Mr. Ng.
She does not remember the event … She is recovering every day and now regains some of her sensitivity and stubbornness, & # 39; he said.
Now it is time that Agnes and her family need all possible support.
& # 39; If we can help relieve some of the stress and financial burden caused by this incident, the goal will be achieved. & # 39;
Prior to the attack, Mrs. Wong also attended a visa for a Youth Mobility System in the United Kingdom.
Sarah Manley, a St John & # 39; s charity's community health services director in Auckland described Wong as a & # 39;caring and charismatic young woman. & # 39;
& # 39; She has a lot of friends here and we are very sorry to hear what happened to her, & # 39; she said.
"Our hearts and minds go out to Agnes and her family during this difficult time."
The motive for the cruel attack remains unclear, without arrests at this stage.
