Lebanon: Update from Helem
We have received news from Helem, an LGBT centre in Beirut. After the influx of refugees from the southern suburbs of Beirut and the south of Lebanon, Helem, together with other NGOs, has begun providing shelter, food, and supplies for the refugees.
Helem has also provided information about some blogs that allow people to get first hand information from Lebanese civil society in Lebanon.
