Elderly Palestinian Woman in Lebanon Appeals for Urgent Treatment

Elderly Palestinian refugee Meriam Mousa Issa, born in 1932, is in need of an urgent pacemaker to help her recover her normal heartbeat.

Displaced from Yarmouk Camp, south of Damascus, to Ein AlHilweh Camp, south of Lebanon, Meriam suffers from cardiovascular disorders, heart failure, and disorders in her normal heart rate. She cannot afford the fees needed for an urgent pacemaker implantation.

Her family has appealed to all concerned parties to stand by her and help her secure treatment charges, estimated at $5,000. UNRWA has shelled out $1,350 and the Palestine Embassy disbursed $800 in aid.

The family said it has failed to secure the remaining sum due to their dire conditions.

Several years ago, Palestinian refugee Meriam Mousa Issa underwent a pacemaker implantation in Syria. However, a new such device should be implanted to replace the old one.
