An Israeli man who was forced to spend several days in a shelter after his homeless family was denied medical care for several days is still paying for food, medical care and other necessities.
The 24-year-old, who goes by his family’s name, is the latest in a long line of homeless Israeli families who have had to live on the streets, often in the same building, since the country began to implement a new system of subsidized medical care that was meant to ease the plight of the country’s homeless population.
The Israeli government has said that the new system will allow families who are sick or in need to access medical care within six months, but some Israelis say that has not happened yet, with a growing number of homeless families suffering from chronic illnesses and disabilities.
In addition to the increased costs of food, water and shelter, many of the families have faced problems with the lack of proper sanitation, which has made the health care process a nightmare for the homeless.
Since March, the Israeli health ministry has reported more than 600 cases of tuberculosis and other illnesses in homeless families, and more than a dozen families have been hospitalized after being denied treatment, with some doctors even calling for the hospitalization of some of the family members.
The system, known as the Housing Emergency Assistance Program (HEPAP), is meant to help the homeless families who need medical care.
The system was supposed to be launched in May, but was postponed for more than two months due to the outbreak of the pandemic, leaving millions of Israelis to wait in line for care.
On Tuesday, the Jerusalem District Court ruled that the homeless family who was denied care for two days due to a lack of medical treatment was entitled to receive it.
The court found that the families were not in need of medical care because they were not homeless, and that the government had failed to fulfill its promise to provide health care for them.
In the ruling, the court said the families did not have enough medical insurance and that they were living on the street due to lack of housing, which led to the lack a place to live.
The government said that it was disappointed in the ruling.
“We have the right to do what we want and provide the care that we want,” said health minister Yaakov Amidror.
“We are very disappointed with the decision of the court.”
While the ruling is good news for the families, it does not mean that the situation will improve anytime soon.
While the number of people receiving emergency medical care in Israel has grown in recent years, it has not been as fast as it is in other countries.
In 2015, for example, an average of one person received medical care every seven minutes in Israel.
The government has pledged to increase the number to one person every 10 minutes, but many in the country fear that it will not be enough.
“There is no medical service here,” said a 28-year old woman who gave her name as Sara.
“I don’t know what I will do if I die.
The medical staff are not working, so I am unable to provide care to anyone.”
Many of the homeless Israelis are in the third-largest city of Tel Aviv, and many of them live in shelters, which have a capacity of about 200 beds.
As the country has begun to tackle the pandemics, more than 6,500 beds have been added to existing shelters.
Despite the rising numbers of homeless people in the region, some residents say that they still feel unsafe.
“I think that the system is not working,” said one man who lives in a one-bedroom apartment in Tel Aviv.
“There are too many homeless people.
They have not been taken care of.”
A number of other homeless families have found themselves in the middle of the crisis, as they wait for their medical care to be processed.
In recent weeks, a family of five was forced out of a hotel because it was not able to afford the medical treatment.
