Extra Medical Fees

  • Yaqout and her sister: JOD 29/month for insulin injections and strips for the blood sugar tests, totaling 174 JOD.
  • Mother: JOD 6/month for medicine related to high blood pressure, totaling 36 JOD.

 

 

KHABAB AND YAQOUT’S STORY

Although Khabab has a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering, he is unemployed due to his chronic kidney failure. He also suffers from an enlarged heart and water in the liver as a complication of the dialysis. Khabab’s sister, Yaqout, also suffers from kidney failure as well as severe diabetes. She was unable to pass her secondary degree (Tawjihi) due to her health condition but is nonetheless still trying to study in order to retake the exam. 

 

Both Khabab and Yaqout are receiving support that covers their kidney dialysis treatment, however, they are struggling to pay for the commute to and from the hospitals in which they receive their treatments three times a week. In fact, Yaqout walks to the hospital -a walk that takes about two hours- which often leads to her body breaking down and needing admission to the ICU. 

 

Their father and mother both suffer from health issues. Their father used to work as a dump truck driver, and the work has greatly affected his health, he therefore is unable to work anymore. He suffers from a hernia in the abdomen, erosion in the knees, white water in his eyes, and high blood pressure.
