MAY AND MARTHA’S REUNION

On Monday 24 October 2016. Martha flew into Heathrow Airport from her home in Nigeria for an emotional reunion with her sister May. This is a major step to continue the long journey of saving the life of May Brown

 


WE DID IT!

ACLT are overjoyed to announce the UK Home Office has allowed entry of May Brown’s sister to the UK.  It was confirmed late on Friday 21 October 2016.

An official statement from the Home Office reads:

Immigration Minister, Robert Goodwill, said:

 “I have carefully considered the case of May Brown and decided that her sister will be granted leave to enter the UK given the compassionate and exceptional circumstances.”

ACLT would like to thank each of our followers who signed the petition, shared the story by sending an email, tweet or Facebook post. With your support we were able to surpass over 60,000 supporters on the online petition we set up last week Thursday.

ACLT co-founder Beverley De-Gale says:

“May is thrilled of the change and can’t stop smiling, and nor can we! Our team have worked tirelessly to raise awareness on May’s story via the petition, national press, social media and letters to the Home Secretary and Immigration Minister, in the hope the Home Office would take into consideration the compassionate and exceptional circumstances surrounding Martha’s visa application and grant her entry to the UK.”

“This result just reconfirms what amazing things can be achieved with focus, passion and a determination to succeed.” 

“May still has a long way to go, but for now we will join her to celebrate this amazing news.”

As a charity which survives solely on fundraising, ACLT relies on the generosity of the British public to sustain the charity, for us to be able to support patient appeals like May’s.  To become a regular monthly donor, please click here
