Greetings from the Trained Nurses’ Association of India!
We write this letter in reference to the disturbing news appearing in the various news channels, print and electronic, regarding nurses and other Indian nationals stranded in Iraq.
On behalf of the President, TNAI and nursing fraternity of India, we are deeply concerned about the welfare, safety and security of nurses working there. Nurses who are employed there to save lives of people are now facing dangerous threat to their own lives.
TNAI request the MOEA to intervene in this matter and ensure the safety and security of the nurses and other Indians stranded in Iraq.
We appreciate your Ministry’s efforts in constantly monitoring the development of stranded Indians in Iraq (Mosul and Tikrit).
We are confident that favourable steps will be taken by your Ministry and your goodself will personally intervene in this matter to safeguard the lives of Indians stranded in disturbed Iraq.
The Trained Nurses’ Association of India established in 1908, is the registered professional body of Nurse Practitioners in the country. The main objectives of the association are to uphold the dignity and honour of the Nursing profession, to promote a sense of esprit de corps among all Nurses, to promote high standards of Health Care and Nursing Practice and to advance professional, educational, economic and general welfare of Nurses and public at large.
With kindest regards,
