Medical company donates aid to refugees in Lebanon

Aug. 16, 2011 10:44 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 17, 2011 1:55 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The Jerusalem Pharmaceutical Company sent 35 doctors from different specializations to Lebanon on Sunday, the executive manager Iyad Masroujy said.

The move comes as part of a campaign by President Mahmoud Abbas to support Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

The Jerusalem based private company has also donated more than 10,000 different medicines to treat a range of diseases, Masroujy said.

The donation only goes a small way to meeting the diverse needs of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, he added.

There are currently over 400,000 Palestinian refugees registered with UNRWA in Lebanon and the fragile sectarian composition of Lebanese society makes their presence a sensitive issue.

Refugees in the country have long suffered discrimination and are deprived of basic rights.
