Join us for a panel with MAAS alumni working in development and humanitarian aid in various parts of the MENA region to hear about how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting their work. Panelists will speak about how their organizations and the countries that they work in are adapting to new needs that have emerged during the pandemic. Speakers will also speak to how they have seen the development and humanitarian aid sector in the MENA region generally adapt to the new pandemic reality.
