“After escaping from her employer’s house where she was working as a maid, she started tailoring to earn a living but in October she met with a road accident and is bed ridden. We are trying to collect funds for her as she has two cases booked by her employer for fleeing their house and robbery. Due to this she had to pay a fine. She needs 800 AED to pay fines. Hospital authorities are ready to discharge her but if there is no house for her then they will have to send her to the police station as it may take years for deportation,” said Sheikh Basha, a social worker of Kuwait Andhra.
He adds, “It was a major accident. She underwent multiple surgeries and is partially disabled. She cannot work anymore and her husband did not bother to contact her. If she gets any help from the government she might be able to have a residence and can return to India where she can get treatment.”
M. Bheem Reddy, Migrants Rights Council vice president said, “The Indian Embassy should help her to come back. They can allot some money from the Indian Community Welfare Fund (ICWF). The government of AP should also provide medical aid and help her from the CM’s Relief Fund”.
