AJMAN // Authorities are working to return a sick French mother and her three children to her home country after she suffered a nervous breakdown as a result of financial and residency problems.
Ajman Police refused to send her back because of her inability to travel without a companion because of her medical condition, said First Lt Wafa Khalil Ibrahim, director of the Social Support Centre at Ajman Police.
S F, 42, came to the UAE five months ago to work with a Somali woman who asked go into business together after her husband divorced her.
“I knew from her neighbour A M that she converted to Islam and her husband divorced her and her family cut off relations with her because of that,” Ms Ibrahim said.
“When she came here and settled down in Dubai, she found there was no business, which led to her accumulating debts.
“The mother is scared to go back home, but her children are happy after they were left home alone for a day without food,” Ms Ibrahim said.
Col Abdulla Al Hamrani, deputy commander general at Ajman Police, said despite the fact she is in breach of residency rules, they cared only about S F’s needs and those of her children.
Col Al Hamrani said: “When visitors inform their consulates about their [health] conditions, if they have a medical condition, it will be easy for us to help quickly.”
