Govt urged to pay special needs NGOPeople with special needs whose rehabilitation center closed because the government failed to pay it staged a protest alongside their families in Downtown Beirut Wednesday morning, demanding that Cabinet back-pay the funds the state owes so the center can reopen. The Myriam Center in Hadath, a center for severely disabled people run by the Al-Kafaat Foundation, closed its doors at the beginning of the year, leaving about 100 former clients without services.The NGO is one of dozens of organizations that are contracted with the Social Affairs Ministry to provide services to disabled people but that did not receive payments from the government for more than a year.
