This photo was found on social media platforms today posted by Lara Hussein who said:
“This old homeless guy has been lying on the pavement at the end of Mar Mkhayel for 2 hours covered in blood and in the sun. We called the Red Cross, who said no hospital would take him.. We called 112 they said they will see what to do. Nothing so far. His feet have gangrene we cannot lift him. We don’t know what NGO to call. Shame on this country! Please share among each other maybe some authority would feel a sense of humanity and help!”
So we took the liberty to post and share it in hopes that we would spread the word, lest this man remain stranded and not receive the help he so desperately needs.
This is a photo I took a couple of days ago also in Mar Mkhayel. The homeless man just seems to be sleeping on the pavement as people walk by.
Please share this blog and the photo and if you can help please do so.
In the absence of a governmental body with conscience it seems we only have each other.
