am Intisar AbdElgayoom.
I was born in Sudan in the year 1963 and I had my basic
studies in its governmental schools. I am the mother of
Mohammed and Ibrahim Abdulla and I have been working as
a medical practitioner since 1991.
the year 1992 my husband and I were working in Omdurman
Teaching Hospital. The Medical Support Administration started
to disseminate a fatal type of spoiled intravenous solution
in the government hospitals (hospitals that give help to
the mortality rates remarkably increased due to the wide
spread usage of that fatal intravenous solutions, some of
the doctors including me and my husband called to prompt
boycotting of that solution and they started an enlightening
campaign. Its target is to highlight the way in which these
solutions were allowed to enter the country and how it had
been supported by the regime and its National Islamic Front
called for the entire community and medical community in
particular to boycott these solutions and to press hard
on the hospital administrations to cease their fatal distributions
and to replace them by other verified quotas. We were stressing
one decision that shouldn't the government withdrew these
solutions, all hospitals in Sudan must go at times on strike.
Instead of the prompt and humanitarian response, the government
started a counter to arrest all the activists who were agitating
this sensitive issue and since then we were suffering.
July 2001, my husband was arrested and taken to an unknown
place. At that point, I decided with the help of some relatives
and friends to quit the country with my three children to
Egypt. We resided in Egypt for 3 years.
Egypt we suffered a lot and wrote to the Australian Embassy
about our condition and applied for immigration - where
my application was approved and me and my kids have been
in Australia since last May. Thanks to God for giving me
the chance to reside in Australia this nice country.
