Middle East Crisis: Resources
We recognize that there is a lot of misinformation circulating in the media and many of you are looking for trusted resources. We continue to follow the situation, compiling resources and monitoring for any issues that arise locally. Below we’ve compiled some helpful links.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, or are looking for additional resources to help you or your family better understand and navigate the current conflict in the Middle East, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Jackie Congedo, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
