Cancer Patients

In 2016, Lebanon was given a $55 million World Bank loan to clean up the Litani River and lake Qaraoun. Five years later only a fraction of the money has been spent, the river and lake remain an open sewer and cancer rates have skyrocketed. Will the people of the Bekaa Valley ever see the rest of the money, and enjoy clean water?

The sight of over crowded private doctors’ clinics, with over booked appointment lists for consultation or follow up is a thing of the past. The cost per consultation now ranges between LBP200,000 and LBP300,000. This has forced many patients to seek treatment in public sector clinics or healthcare centers where the consultation fees don’t exceed LBP20,000.

“Palestinian women get cancer twice. Once through the body and once through the partner, when he abandons his wife. The latter is a fate that nearly 75 percent of women with cancer have to face.”
