Elderly Palestinian in Need of Urgent Heart Surgery

Palestinian refugee from Syria Abdul Majid Abu Kharaj, who was displaced from Yarmouk Camp to Lebanon’s AlBekaa Valley, was transferred to a hospital following a heart attack that struck his vulnerable body.

Medics said he is in need of an open-heart surgery but backtracked shortly after, as a set of checks ups and tests proved his body’s cardiac surgery intolerance. Medics decided to carry out cardiac catheterization (with balloon angioplasty and stent placement) to open up narrowed/clogged coronary arteries.

Abdul Majid has appealed to the concerned parties to help him secure treatment fees, estimated at $6,543. UNRWA pledged to reimburse $2,000. The needed sum is estimated at $1,800.

Nearly 28,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria have sought shelter in Lebanon, where they have been subjected to a precarious legal status and dire socio-economic conditions owing to their lack of access to vital services, particularly health care.
