A displaced Palestinian family in Greece has appealed to the Greek authorities and international humanitarian organizations to work on securing urgent treatment for their six-year-old daughter, diagnosed with bone cancer.
Speaking with the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) on condition of anonymity, the family said their child’s health condition has remarkably deteriorated as they cannot afford to buy medicines at a monthly budget of 700 Euros.
Palestinian refugees continue to risk their lives onboard the “death boats” to Greece, rummaging around for a momentary respite from the daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction.
AGPS has kept record of the death of dozens of refugees onboard Greece-bound ships. Several others have been arrested by Greek coast guards.
