An NGO Helped Yashmin On This Process

Yashmin has a little daughter and this was the primary reason why she was unable to fly back to Mumbai. Her baby was just 28 months old and she did not have an official birth certificate. Sudheer Thirunilath is the country head of Pravasi Legal Cell in Bahrain and he shared that the infant had no birth certificate as her mother was about to divorce her father and the process was in continuation. This turned out to be a major obstacle for Yashmin and her daughter to travel back to India.
