Rana is an assistant pharmacist at the Makarem Al Akhlak Medical Center in Lebanon. She explains, “Diabetes is very common in Lebanon, especially in our region, probably because of how hard life is here and the lack of self-care and healthy lifestyles. We have about 120 diabetes patients taking metformin. They each need 60 to 90 pills per month, depending on their condition.” #HPICpartners with NGOs like Anera to help patients who visit clinics like Makarem Al Akhlak Medical Center. Thanks to our pharmaceutical partners, HPIC shipped over $1.7 million worth of medicine to Lebanon in 2019!
