Very sad to know about her demise. May God grant eternal peace to departed soul & give courage to family members to bear this loss. May her rest in peace. A small though in my mind without Kerala producing so many nursing staff, how the world will cope up. Salute to the State of Kerala for such a noble cause. May God bless INDIA

May her soul rest in peace. Kerala should take initiative and repatriate such patient for treatment in India. After all they come here for work, not for death. Shall we expect Kerala Govt take action?
