Dubai: The Kannadigas Federation and the Aim India Foundation with help of embassy have successfully managed to secure the return of Changur Prasad, a resident of Gorakpur in Uttar Pradesh, from the UAE.
Speaking to the media, convenor of the International Kannadigas' Federation, Hidayat Addur said, “Changur is a poor worker who was convinced by his agent that he would find a job in Dubai. He was left without food and found roaming. However, he was suddenly hospitalized due to falling ill. Upon examination, it was discovered that he was suffering from Brain Tumour.”
“Sheikh Muzaffar of the Aim India Foundation getting to know that Changur Prasad was admitted in hospital visited him and helped him gain courage. He soon contacted me. We gave Changur the first-aid treatment at Sharjah Qasmiya Hospital and discharged as per doctor's advice. We paid the hospital bills totalling up to Rs 1 lakh and contacted his family to ensure his safe travel back home. As a co-traveller was needed, we called his son-in-law here”
Hidayat further said, “Since Changoor Prasad had lost his passport before he was admitted to hospital and hence had to wait until the new White Passport Emergency Certificate was ready, to send him home. That is Praveen Shetty of Fortune Group of Hotels Chairman provided stay and food in his hotel for 12 days.”
Councilor Jitendra Singh Negi of the Indian Embassy in Dubai saw to it that emergency certificate was prepared smoothly and social worker Girish Pant helped in coordination. The police report, and immigration work was completed by Muzaffar and Imran Yermal. From the day discharge until the day of further surgery in India, whatever medicines required and for the return to his home have been provided by our team spending over Rs 2.5 lakh.
We are in talks with concerned in Uttar Pradesh to get him further treatment, Hidayat added.
