Shatila refugee camp is a one square kilometre site, just outside Beirut. It is home to an estimated 40,000 refugees who have been driven from their homes in Palestine and Syria by conflict. Trócaire’s partner Basmeh & Zeitooneh provides much-needed services and social workers provide group-based and individual psychosocial support to all. One initiative encouraged women to express themselves through art and this exhibition was the result.
