Teacher Stranded In Dubai Has Medical Bills Paid Off

A female teacher from Manchester has had her medical bills paid off by the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, after she was left stranded in Dubai following a horse-riding accident.

Rebecca Chisholm, 24, suffered extensive injuries to her brain and remains in intensive care at Rashid Hospital in the Middle-East, after being thrown from her horse during a placement.

The insurance provided by her school had failed to pay out the £60,000 plus-bill since the tragic accident earlier this month, until the country's ruler - Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum stepped in to save the family fortunes.

The country's Sheikh is a well-known equestrian, self-founding the Godolphin racing stable - one of the highest profile yard operations across the globe, along with ownership of Darley; a thoroughbred breeding operation with setups in six countries.

A statement on the family's funding page said: "His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has offered singularly the most generous gift we could ever have wished to receive.

"His Highness has offered to pay for all of Becca’s medical costs until she is discharged from Rashid Hospital. We will be forever thankful to him and his country."

Rebecca's mum, Wendy Skelton, had flown to Dubai for her daughter's birthday and was by her side at the time of the accident.

Her family as a whole have highly commended the 'world class treatment' Rebecca has been administered in intensive care, after Wendy found her daughter 'lying in a heap in the sand', which left her 'clinging onto it for dear life'.

Speaking on Nottinghamshire Live, they said: "Her condition is improving but her severe brain injury had left her with extreme fatigue after simple activities such as eating or talking, panic attacks and requiring speech therapy.

"Becca is still confined to bed with a fluid drain from her brain still in place and she has not walked since the accident.

"Her rehabilitation in the UK will be lengthy and it is still too soon to say whether she will make a full recovery."

A GoFundMe page has raised over £65,000 for the 24-year-old teacher, who previously taught at St Clare’s RC Primary School in Blackley, just outside Manchester.

Pupils and staff have contributed just over £7,000 after a fundraising walk with specialist t-shirts, which will support her eventual specialist-medical flight home, and give her access to the best aftercare in the UK.

We personally wish Becca the best recovery from her accident, and hope to see her home soon.
