Abu DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - SEPTEMBER 11, 2018. 

Freya Jaffar and her daughter, Elenah. 

Abu Dhabi is currently suffering a shortage of junior epipens. Very few hospitals have them in stock right now - SEHA hospitals being the only we know about. This is partly due to a worldwide shortage. And parents are very worried about their children being without their lifesaving medicine. Freya Jaffar eventually managed to track an epipen down for her daughter, Elenah, four, who has a life threatening allergy to nuts, after posting an appeal on her Abu Dhabi Q&A Facebook group.
