Stay on Top of the World’s Turmoil
Looking to stay abreast of where the next groups of refugees and asylees are likely to come from? One top source for news of tough times in other countries is the International Rescue Committee website.
By its description, IRC “responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.”
Recent articles on its website covered Syrian refugee mothers’ labors to take care of their kids, an analysis of what world leaders can do to end famine, and a piece on the dislocation caused by volcanic eruption in Goma.
The site provides a stylish, tightly written jolt of information, and is well worth a look.
