Maher Fakih, a Lebanese doctor from Tair Debba, South of Lebanon passed away recently while fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in Kuwait where he has been working for many years.
He suffered from diabetes but insisted to go on doing his job and serving people in these dangerous and critical times.
Dr. Fakih is one of two Lebanese doctors to pass away from coronavirus in Kuwait.
He’s also one of the many heroes all around the world who gave their lives while fighting for the well-being of other people, and such a selfless act did not go unrecognized.
Dar Al-Shifa Hospital in Kuwait named one of its buildings after Dr. Fakih in recognition of his mission, his important role during these tough times, and his selflessness.
The hospital administration said in a statement: “He is the martyr of duty… he who suffered from diabetes and insisted on carrying out his human duty.”
We are proud of our doctors and heroes doing their humane mission in Lebanon as well as around the world. Rest In peace, Dr. Fakih.
