One Way to Help Lebanon
I quote from an email from The Nation: "Nation columnist Naomi Klein is urging support for the Sanayeh Relief Center, established by a group of non-sectarian Lebanese leftists. Sanayeh is providing relief at 27 schools in the city of Beirut, which are currently housing 9,117 displaced people--more than 1,000 under the age of five--from the southern regions of Lebanon and the southern suburbs of Beirut."
Check out the Sanayeh Relief Center's blog for updates. Here are the details on how to contribute. The girls pictured here have taken refuge at Sanayeh park, in central Beirut, where hundreds are "camping out," in the open.
