Medical visa was finally granted to a somali woman

The Gillard government had refused an African woman a visa to travel to Australia to get her facial surgery done as she wanted her face reconstructed, but when she applied for the visa for a second time it was approved.


During Somalia's brutal civil war the 25 year old woman named Ayaan Mohamed had received very brutal injuries to her face when she was shot at as an infant.

The Wesley Hospital and Rotary of Brisbane had offered to bring Ayaan to Australia and give her a surgery free of cost but the medical visas of the woman had been refused in March 2013.

The second application which the African woman made in the month of October got accepted by Minister Scott Morrison.

Mr Scott Morrison informed the AAP that some discussions were conducted with the Australian High Commission and after that the woman applied again for the visa, and the visa was than approved and given to the woman after the department was sure that the woman was meeting all visa requirements.

On Ayaan's behalf around 40,000 people had sent a petition to Mr. Scott Morrison.

Noela Philips of the Rotary Club of Brisbane high-rise had organised the petition and was very happy indeed that Ayaan had finally got the visa including Ayaan's advocate Edna Adan.

Noela Philips stated that this showed the power that the people have and this is all just very exciting.

This decision of the Australian government will allow Ayaan to enjoy a life without embarrassment, and she will be able to live a happy life with dignity.

The surgery on Ayaan's face is due to take place on 22nd February.
