Labour committee steps in to help sick Indian worker

A sick worker abandoned in hospital by his sponsor was able to return home after the Dubai Permanent Committee for Labour Affairs stepped in and forced action.
The labour committee helped Shanmugam Adhimoolam, a 31-year-old Indian, who was employed as a cleaner for One Flex in Dubai, to fly home after they instructed the company to act.
Adhimoolam was in hospital for almost a month in Ajman after he was admitted with severe chest pains.
No-one contacted or visited him from his company.
Doctors said they were thankful for the help of the labour committee as he was in urgent need of surgery.
Maj Gen Mohammad Ahmad Al Merri, Director of the Dubai General Directorate for Residency and Foreigners Affairs and Head of Permanent Labour Affairs Committee, said the committee instructed the company to help their worker.
”I’m again inviting all workers who have issues with their sponsors to contact the committee on 8005111 and staff will respond and will transfer them to the concerned people for help,” he said.
Adhimoolam, a father-of-two, lived in a cramped apartment with ten others.
He left the country after the company paid Dh12,000 of a hospital bill exceeding Dh28,000.
Adhimoolam, from Tamil Nadu, came to work in the UAE three years ago to support his parents, wife and children, earning Dh950 per month.
Adhimoolam was discharged on Thursday and returned to India.
Before he left, he told Gulf News: ”I feel very sick and lonely here and I just want to be with my family. I appreciate the prompt help of the labour committee.”
