There are large amounts of unofficial websites, fake news posts, and nefarious social media accounts that are designed to spread fear and doubt about Afghanistan. You can stop this scourge by reporting fraudulent accounts and following only legitimate accounts.
Scroll down for a list of accounts and websites that we know are legitimate. Although the National Resistance Front is legally separate from the Massoud Foundation, we felt it was important to identify official accounts to reduce confusion for everyone. As always, if you have any information that would be helpful, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
