Widow Needs Pacemaker (2)

This woman came to Jordan for treatment with her husband. When they went back to Iraq, they found a threatening letter at their home. Militia placed a bomb under the husband’s car, and he was killed in the explosion.

She returned to Jordan and lives without family.

She receives no support from UNHCR. She is elderly and has high blood pressure and diabetes. She has pleural effusion. She has already had one had heart operation. She needs a pacemaker for her heart. The procedure is expensive and she cannot afford it. She lives with one other women and they pay the rent together.
