Ariella is a 3 year old, with congenital rubella syndrome, ex premature born who stayed to hospital until 7 months after her birth, blind, deaf, with global developmental delay (not sitting, crawling, talking or walking), knee contractures, brain damage, suffering from reflux and dependant on specialised high calorie milk (Peadiasure plus fibre 1.5 kcal/ml) through her stomach tube(PEG gastronomy) for her growth with only 8.5kg as documented 6th February 2018.
I am a single mom who came to the UK 2014 with student visa and was able to complete my Masters (MBA - Oil and gas management) 2015. January 2016 I applied for leave to remain, but was refused December 2016 argued that she can travel (out of home oxygen end of May 2016). I appealed, hearing happened on March 2018 to the First Tier Tribunal and was dismissed.
As argued, in the hearing children like Ariella with disability are a burden to the government - that's not true. Ariella is a happy child, has made a huge progress, with all setbacks she is still determined to explore the world in her own special way.
I have no reliable support to look after her on Tanzania. With low immunity, vulnerable catching infections Ariella will be at risk of early death in Tanzania - Africa. She has been dependant on high calories milk since she was intensive care, which is not available in Tanzania that will easily lead her to malnutrition.
Please sign and help me ask the Minister and Home office to review our case and let my daugher stay on compassionate grounds. Failure to recognise Ariella's vulnerability is likely to result in harm, torture and hardship.
