Antibiotics for patients in Lebanon
Lebanon has been hit by an unprecedented global economic crisis. The middle class, who have their own homes, cars and jobs, now cannot even afford basic medical care due to soaring inflation and the sudden drop in the exchange rate of the Lebanese pound. Those who were previously doing well in Lebanon are now asking shopkeepers for a loan in the form of a loaf of bread and a container of yoghurt.
Those at greatest risk from the lack of medical care are children and the elderly, who, because of their weakened immunity, are more susceptible to contracting bacterial diseases that require antibiotics. These have been in constant short supply since the explosion in Beirut last year. Faced with these circumstances, even hospitals are having to make drastic decisions about whom they help.
Let us not leave the Lebanese without help. Donate a pack of antibiotics that could still save someone’s life today!
