Palestinian Child from Syria with Diabetes in Need of Urgent Treatment

The family of a 16-year-old Palestinian girl from Syria taking shelter in Lebanon’s AlBekaa region have called on the International Red Cross, the Palestine Liberation Organization, and all other concerned institutions to take urgent action in order to help the family secure sums of money needed to treat the girl and buy medicines.

The father said his daughter was diagnosed with diabetes in Syria some four years ago due to the traumatic upshots of shelling and destruction in and around Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Damascus.

The family has been unable to purchase medicines. Drugs handed over to her by UNRWA turned out to be inappropriate. She was admitted twice into the hospital after her health took a turn for the worse.

A doctor prescribed insulin injections worth $US 220 per month, a sum that far outlives the family’s capacity to regularly shell it out.

Nearly 28,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria have sought shelter in Lebanon, where they have been deprived of vital services, particularly health care.
