External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has been admitted to AIIMS in preparation for her kidney transplantation, which is likely to take take soon, according to reports. 

But that has not stopped from getting on with her work and responding to those in distress, who continue to appeal to her. 

She tweeted a few hours ago that an Indian man, Jagannathan Selvaraj, who had walked for 1,000 km seeking justice in Dubai had been brought back home. After Selvaraj‘s plight was publicised, she had said she would act on that. 

She also responded to an appeal from an Egyptian  who is terribly overweight and wants to come to India for treatment, but has been refused visa.  

On December 5, Geeta Singh an  AIIMS scholar, who was struggling to get an Australian visa, to attend a conference appealed for help. Sushma Swaraj ensured she got a visa on the same day and also invited her to meet her in AIIMS. 

Sushma Swaraj made public last month that she had had a kidney failure and may need a transplant, becoming a rare leader to disclose her health problems. 

The Economic Times reported recently she had ensured that the ministry was running smooth in her absence by staying in touch with senior officials.
