Hepatitis patients from Afrin left without medicine

At least 40 hepatitis patients among the people from Afrin who settled in the Shehba Canton due to the barbaric attacks by the invading Turkish state are unable to obtain the medicine necessary for their treatment.

The people of Afrin, who have had to migrate from their lands due to barbaric attacks by the invading Turkish state and their allied gangs, also lack access to humanitarian aid due to the blockade.

People of Afrin who live in the tent camps set up in Shehba complain most about the inability to access medical services. The clinic opened by the Heyva Sor A Kurd and the hospitals try to provide medical services despite their limited resources, but the lack of medical resources pose a threat to the lives of severely ill patients in particular.

At least 40 hepatitis patients from Afrin are unable to receive treatment in Shehba where they currently have to live. One of them is Mistefa Seydo, from Afrin’s Rajo district, currently residing in the Til Şiîr village in Shehba. Seydo inadvertently infected his wife, 8 year old son Ebdulrehman and 3 year old twin sons Selam and Rohêv. 

Heyva Sor A Kurd officials conducted a study in the camps and determined that 48 people have hepatitis as of now.
