MANILA, Philippines - An American welder and cabinet maker has expressed interest in helping Baikan Mousa, the paralyzed Filipino worker who is languishing in a hospital in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Through an e-mail correspondence with the migrant workers advocacy group Kapisanan ng mga Kamag-anak ng Migranteng Manggagawang Pilipino, Inc. (Kakammpi), 52-year-old Milton McCormick said that he doesn’t know Mousa personally but was moved when he read an article about her a week before.
Mousa, a 29-year old cleaner on a visit visa in Dubai, was paralyzed waist down after she was hit by a car while crossing a street in the Deira district of Dubai last December.
In the first letter sent by Milton, resident of Louisiana, USA, he said that “(his) heart went out to (Mousa)" after reading her condition.
Mousa, a native of the Maguindanao province in the southern Philippines, communicates mainly by blinking her eyes and is dependent on tubes to do other basic body functions.
