Divya Sijo arrived in UK last year same like everyone dreaming a better life for her family and bagun her career as a staff nurse at Bath hospital. Divya hail from Kayamkulam in Kerala and her dreams were shattered in the form of life threatening disease of luekemia, which diagnosed within an year of her arrival. She has her husband and two young children and now they are struggling to cope up with the unexpected twist in their life and fell into the financial difficulty also due to the sudden illness of the main bread winner of the family. Husband is unable to go for work since he has to look after his hospitalised wife along with two small children. .Life can take unexpected turns in our lives. While most of us are in the festive mood, a lot of them among us are not. Constant worry about their health and the financial implications due to their ill health is ruining their lives. When Divya came to UK exactly an year ago, her dreams were to build a stable life here and support her parents and in laws back home. Everything turned upside down with diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. Only in work for les than an year, she is only qualified for full sick pay for couple of months. Divya and her family do not know how to maneuver around the difficult corner in their life at the moment. Being ill with two very small kids means her husband can not work to earn any living for the family. We fellow human beings can help them at their difficulty. Divya is very hopeful that she can get back to life after good treatments here. What more good we can do than helping a person who is in desperate need of our help. British Malayali Charity Foundation is thankful to its contributors the generosity they have shown towards our recent appeal. We are hopeful that your generosity will help Divya and family to get back to their lives. Let us be hopeful and keep them in our prayers during this special time of the year.
