Subject: Urgent Request: Visa Application for Medical Treatment in Turkey Dear Embassy of Turkey, I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to bring to your attention an urgent matter concerning the medical treatment of my nephew, Tomas Giorgis Berhe, who requires immediate assistance from the Turkish Embassy in Asmara, Eritrea. Tomas Giorgis Berhe has been dealing with a congenital foot deformity since birth, specifically the absence of five toes on his left foot. This condition has severely impacted his quality of life, hindering his ability to walk comfortably and wear appropriate footwear. After thorough research and consultation, we have arranged a comprehensive treatment plan for Tomas in Turkey through a renowned medical travel assistance company, Vaidam Health (vaidam.com). Vaidam Health is known for facilitating medical treatment for patients from around the world, ensuring their journey to optimal health. In order for Tomas to embark on this crucial medical journey, it is imperative that he obtains a visa to enter Turkey. As his guardian and supporter, I have made arrangements to accompany him during his medical treatment, especially during the upcoming summer break. I have taken time off from my work in the Netherlands to join him on his journey and ensure his well-being and recovery are adequately managed. With this in mind, I kindly request your expedited assistance in facilitating the issuance of Tomas Giorgis Berhe's visa. He is scheduled to visit the Turkish Embassy in Asmara on August 21, 2023, with the earnest hope that his visa application can be processed promptly, enabling him to access the much-needed medical treatment in Turkey. I understand the gravity of your responsibilities and the demands on your time, but I humbly implore you to consider the urgency of Tomas's situation. Your prompt attention and assistance in this matter will significantly alleviate the physical and emotional hardships he has endured due to his medical condition. Thank you for your understanding and anticipated cooperation. We remain hopeful that the Turkish Embassy in Asmara can play a pivotal role in ensuring that Tomas Giorgis Berhe's medical treatment journey can proceed without delay. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] for any further information or clarification you may require. We greatly appreciate your attention to this pressing matter and look forward to a positive response. Yours sincerely, Prins Amir Osman
