Iraqi refugee - Need desperate medicine in Turkey

Naser is a refugee from Iraq and is a member and friend of Chester Hill Anglican Church.

The rest of his family are in Turkey (5 children and one in US). Recently, one of his daughters, Amaleed, was diagnosed with Hepatitis C that she contracted through a blood transfusion back in Iraq. And so, she is in desperate need of medicine - Exviera and Viekrax . Without the medicine, the doctors have said the prognosis is that she has a low rate of survival (dying from cirrhosis of the liver). But with the medicine there is a 95% success rate of being cured.

This medicine would normally be covered by PBS in Australia but costs US $10,000 in Turkey. Our pharmacist and doctor friends have confirmed this figure sounds ballpark for this medicine without PBS. But as refugees they simply cannot afford this medicine by themselves.

Some money has been raised already. But if you can help, please help them and show kindness to this wonderful family. 

The money will be handled through our account and sent to connected agencies in Turkey to buy the medicine.
