Hyderabad: Sujana Tulasi, 35, who hails from Attili mandal in West Godavari district, is stranded in Kuwait since six months after she was admitted at the Farwaniya Hospital with major injuries from a road accident on October 31, 2016.
As she does not have residence permit since a year, she could not claim compensation after the accident. She had escaped from her employer's house as she was tortured by them. Sujana lost her father in childhood and her mother Santhoshamma two years back.
Her 40-year-old husband had left her with two children, 12-year-old Jaswanthi and 11-year old Janvhi who stay in a government hostel at Attili. She has an elder brother and three sisters, but only one sister tried to contact her. But she could not help her much as she is not financially independent.
To send her back to India, Kuwait Andhra an NGO from Kuwait, is trying to collect funds for her through social media and some societies. Sujana Tulasi who was staying in Kuwait since three years wants to return to India as soon as possible, and is seeking help from the Indian government.
Sheikh Basha, a social worker of Kuwait Andhra said, “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”.
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.”
Migrants Rights Council vice president M. Bheem Reddy 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”.
