Lillian posted: “Please let the word our, maybe your call and those who are sick will awaken the sleeping consciences. The comedian actress Amalia Abi Saleh, who drew a smile on our faces, is suffering from illness and its a shame shame shame that not one hospital is admitting her because of her government insurance. Amalia is not a no-one in this nation. Amalia fought, raised a family with hunger, happiness, and pride during the war days… We should not keep silent on this medical disgrace… Where are those MP’s? Where are the ministers? Where is the humanity and conscience of these hospitals? It is not allowed starting today, to keep artists and actors waiting on the doors of hospitals and not admitting them because they have Health Ministry insurance! We will not sit still! Ministry of Health should take immediate action towards this miserable situation. They should go tonight and take her from her house to a hospital just like any country that respects humans before artists and actors. May God be with you Amalia.. This is a shame!”
