US Embassy issues last-minute visa to ailing Pakistani girl!

A last minute-visa has been issued by the US Embassy in Islamabad to an ailing 6-year-old Pakistani girl desperately in need of surgery in the United States.

The father of Maria, Shahid Ullah, says that the family is “so happy” at the news and thanked friends and supporters world over who helped them.

Ullah, a poor carpet shop owner in Rawalpindi, near the capital of Islamabad, has campaigned for around four years seeking treatment for Maria.

Maria suffers from a genetic disorder known as Morquio Syndrome, in which the vertebrae compress the spinal cord.

The visas were approved, the embassy said. Ullah says he and his wife will accompany Maria to a children’s hospital in Wilmington, Delaware, that has agreed to do the procedure for free.
