Syrian Mohammed expects a heart support device to live
Syrian Mohammad el-Ibrahim, diagnosed with heart failure, said he would die if he could not find a cardiac support device, asking the authorities to help.
The 8-population Ibrahim family, settled in the Karaköprü District of Sanlıurfa, southeastern province of Turkiye, because of the civil war Syria, is struggling with difficult living conditions, while at the same time experiencing the desperation of not being able to do anything for their children who suffer heart failure.
Speaking to ILKHA, Father Yasir el Ibrahim, 42, stated that his eldest son Muhammad, 18, was diagnosed with heart failure a year and a half ago.
Adding that only 10 percent of his son Mohammed's heart is working, father said his son will die if the heart support device is not inserted in the heart of his son.
The painful father, who argued that the state does not provide them heart support device because they are Syrians, requested support from the Governor of Şanlıurfa and other officials.
"I have heart failure and my disease emerged a year and a half ago. I have been in intensive care for two months now. I need a pacemaker in my heart to live. They do not care about me because I am Syrian," said Mohammed el-Ibrahim, the heart failure patient.
Calling on authorities for the help, el-Ibrahim said: "Please help me for the sake of God."
