LEISHMANIASIS SPREADS IN AFRIN

Civilians continue to suffer from a lack of medical care in Afrin Canton of Aleppo province.

According to the source, there are about 100 cases of Leishmaniasis in Deir Ballut refugee camp that located near pro-Turkish militants-held Jindires town. The majority of seriously affected is children.

In particular the camp lacks medicines and necessary supplies to provide minimal medical care. Deir Ballut residents also can’t obtain required drugs to recover from Leishmaniasis because firstly they have no means of buying the medicines (a dose of the cure costs 5,000 Syrian liras*) and secondly have no bus fire to get areas where they can get treatment.
