Free Prescription Drugs for Chronic Diseases in Lebanon
Because of the financial crisis in Lebanon, people are choosing between eating or buying the medicine they need to control chronic illnesses that require daily treatment. Mercy-USA is providing prescription medicines for hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol and cardio vascular disease free of charge. Some of the beneficiaries to this vital program are poor Palestinians in the Beddawi refugee camp, Syrian refugees and poor Lebanese in Wadi Khaled and other various locations in Lebanon. This is a lifeline for those who couldn’t afford their prescriptions. This program will prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and death among the chronically ill.
