Indian Nurses Working In Farwaniya Hospital Complained To Indian Embassy For The Unexpected Termination
Hundreds of Indian nurses working in Farwaniya hospital complained to Indian Embassy in Kuwait for the unexpected termination by the contracting company. The Nurses were recruited by the contracting company five years back on a three year contract. Last two years, company made annual renewal of their contract. On Sunday, the company officials informed that the contract period is over and nurses have to leave the country within three days while they were expecting another renewal term like in previous years.
Since the official contracting period is over, the nurses are unable to make any complaint against the company. However the sudden loss of job without any prior information has put them in a real soup, they told.
Many of them are here with their children studying in various schools in Kuwait. The company asked them to leave country within 3 days while many of their kids are attending the annual exams here. Even though the nurses have valid visa till August, the company is not ready to give release, they complained. Many of the nurses have also complained that they had paid more than Three Lakhs Indian rupees to the agents before coming to Kuwait.
