UGANDA: Maids who need help returning home must contact the embassy first

We have a young lady in Dubai who was badly beaten and might die if we do not bring her home for treatment. Her brother contacted me and what stunned me is he did not know the Uganda Ambassador to UAE and neither does the victim or family. Here is the link to our embassy in Abu Dhabi.
It is crucial that you contact the embassy first. Then send me a copy of the email you sent them. If you call, keep a log of the calls and send me. Sometimes I am not on WhatsApp even if it shows that I am online. We need to start acting with urgency as far too many Ugandans are dying in the Middle East. This is unacceptable.
The parents of the young lady are going to see the Minister of Gender and Development tomorrow. They did not know they had to do this. They do not have an appointment. I know how Uganda things work. In the meantime, I am going to place an international call to UAE and talk to the ambassador kesho (Friday January 31, 2020) as I am also a parent and it would hurt too much to read about another death of a maid.
We must start exercising #CommonSense.
