A Filipina single mother is overstaying in Dubai after leaving her abusive and cheating husband. She is planning to divorce her marriage and benefit from the amnesty program.

Jamila admitted to Khaleej times that she suffered battery from her husband who left her and took all her legal documents with him. At that time, she was pregnant with their first-born.

She gave birth in March and had to beg her husband to pay the hospital bills. Jamila’s husband used her situation to solicit money which he sent to his family in Pakistan.

The last straw for Jamila was when her husband tried to kidnap their child. After she asked him to pay for a medical check-up, her husband run away with the baby. She sought the help of Sharjah Family and Child Protection to recover her child.

With no source of income, she relied on credit cards for milk and diapers and now the banks are hunting her. Her baby still has no passport and residence visa. She hopes to start a new life with the upcoming amnesty program.
