Relief efforts in Nepal continue following the earthquakes that struck in late April and early May of 2015. For Global Activsm, we talk with Dr. Chandra Chataut, an internist at Stroger Hospital in Chicago. Born and raised in Nepal, he traveled to back in late May to see his family and participated in three medical camps in villages most affected by the earthquakes.
Bright Hope International helps faith communities provide aid and assistance to the extreme poor in some of the world’s most devastated countries. The group works in areas such as crisis response, orphan relief, and recently started a program to rescue girls from the sex trade in northern India. We’ll talk with Bright Hope's CEO and president, C.H. Dyer.
