Here’s a non-musical resource: if you are considering making a donation to help refugees (or for any other cause), you may find the Charity Navigator website useful. It provides detailed information on the performance of a large number of charities, many in the US, but some with an international component (for example, the International Rescue Committee or UNICEF). The information on the website can help you to make sure your donation is being used efficiently and effectively. Here is their listing of highly-rated charities focusing on the refugee crisis.
