Originally leaving Australia on June 25th to provide care for her mother, who suffered a stroke following heart surgery, Marianne’s planned flight back in July was cancelled after closure of Melbourne’s international airport due to the pandemic.
Flight after flight has been booked to no avail; 26th July into Sydney, 8th August into Perth. Airlines are no longer offering August flights to Australia for economy passengers, leaving a business class ticket as the family’s only option to bring Marianne home.
Marianne’s involuntary absence from her work as a nurse at Werribee Mercy, coupled with the cost of living in limbo overseas, has taken a severe financial toll on the family.
We ask anyone who is able help to donate some $ towards getting Marianne onto a flight home on 25th August.
This would get her back in time to spend her daughter’s 4th birthday at home, together with the family, and end the 10-week-long period her kids had to spend without their mother.
Thank you for helping to reunite Marianne’s family,
Ulla (a dear friend of Marianne’s)
