A bronchodilator is placed atop of a prescription treatment paper that belongs to Shahrour's son who is suffering from asthma, inside their home in the besieged town of Arbeen, in Damascus suburbs, Syria February 6, 2016. Shahrour said he developed diabetes at the beginning of the war in Syria. A lack of insulin led to his medical condition worsening and his right foot had to be amputated. Recently he also suffered a stroke that paralysed half his face. He and part of his extended family, a total of 18 people, live together and struggle to get by.

A Picture and its Story: Begging for help in Damascus
A girl asks a passerby for help to pay a medical bill as her father sits in his wheelchair in the Douma neighbourhood of Damascus Syria February 3, 2016. Reuters Photographer Bassam Khabieh: "Shahrour, 54, developed diabetes at the beginning of the war in Syria. When the siege of Arbeen, in the Damascus suburbs, began, his medical condition worsened and his right foot was amputated. He can no longer work. He and some of his extended family, a total of 18 people, live in the same house. One son, 24, has chronic asthma and also cannot work. His children include two daughters. 'When my pregnant daughter went to hospital in the city of Douma, she needed a drug which was not available in the hospital. (...) I did not have the money to buy the prescription...' He broke down in tears. Medication for father and son costs about $15 a month. The family cannot always raise that as the income of those in work varies each day. 'We couldn't buy firewood' in winter, he said. 'My children would collect some during the day which would burn in one hour on a long cold winter's night. When the weather got too cold, we burnt the old cotton pillows.' Shahrour thinks he and his family should flee their town, and also leave Syria. He knows the situation is no better outside, he said. Nor can he afford to shoulder the financial burdens he may face outside Syria. He and his family have no option but to stay, hoping for a breakthrough."

J.Kim, takes medicine for his bronchial trouble at his house in Beijing November 2, 2014. J.Kim, who is Korean, has worked in China for more than ten years and suffers from rhinitis and asthma. He believes these bronchial problems are caused by Beijing's polluted air. He is hoping to transfer to a new job in Seoul with his company because of the air pollution issue. He currently lives alone in Beijing after sending his family back to Korea as he was worried that air pollution could harm his children's health.

L.D. Chopra, 76, an asthmatic patient, breathes through an oxygen mask while lying on a bed at his residence in New Delhi June 9, 2014. For Chopra, the power cuts were almost the difference between life and death. Chopra was rushed to hospital on May 31 after falling unconscious when a machine he depends on for oxygen support switched off in the outages, he told Reuters. Like Chopra's residence in the east of the city, much of Delhi has been without power for 10 hours per day in the last week, after a jump in demand and damage from a thunderstorm overwhelmed the grid, causing blackouts.
