Palestinian Child from Syria Dies following Medical Neglect in Lebanon

Three-year-old Palestinian child from Syria Maria Tamer Abu Azarah, taking shelter in Ein AlHilweh Camp, south of Lebanon, after she was deported from Yarmouk Camp with her family, succumbed to a deadly cancer on Sunday.

Over recent months, Maria’s family have frequently appealed to all human rights institutions and concerned authorities to cover fees for the treatment of their daughter, diagnosed with blood cancer.

The family said that the child underwent regular checks at Ghassan Hamoud Hospital, where medics diagnosed her with blood cancer and ordered that she stay under control to undergo life-saving treatment.

Medics also said that Maria was in need of four chemical doses weekly and that for the coming two years at least one chemical dose was needed.

The family have failed to secure the money needed for the prescribed chemical doses as a result of their abject living conditions.

Maria is one among dozens of other refugees who have breathed their last owing to the apathy maintained by the international humanitarian bodies and the medical negligence they have fallen prey to in the Lebanese territories, among other countries to which they fled in the hunt for a safe shelter.
