You could start a crowdsourcing campaign at a site like gofundme.com and try to spread the word on social media. Also your friend should get in touch with the local embassy of whatever country the guy is a citizen of.

I am sorry but I am far less sympathetic - If you chose to travel without travel insurance then I do not see why you should expect others to pay when you end up in trouble

hard I know but I have noticed more of these appeals for help recently

the best tips i could suggest is going to the mosque or church and tell your situation to the people who are working/in charge that place. they would help you to find way out.
