Holot photo diary, day 42: Nobody to take care of the sick

Day 42 – (March 16, 2014)

Yesterday evening one guy in our room wasn’t feeling well. I went to talk with gate prison and told him about it. He answered that it is not his responsibility. After I showed him to the room I asked to call the doctor. He allowed us to go to the doctor but when we got to the clinic we understood he wasn’t really a doctor but a male nurse. He tried to check him and gave him only four capsules. He was very sick and couldn’t sleep all night. Nobody takes care of us here.

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.

      No, no-one cares about you here. No one wishes you here. You have got not even one single reason to be here. Just go back to your “warm and loving land” where your government would take proper care of you.
