Eight Forty-Eight

Eight Forty-Eight 8.9.2011

Eight Forty-Eight is pre-empted for a special episode of World Vision Report. Many families in Africa go without medical care or prescriptions because they don't have the money. Now residents of Senegal can purchase micro-insurance. For $2.50 a month, it covers 70 percent of hospital and doctor costs. That story, a hospice with a huge heart in south Texas, the transformation of Western Union, and making Mayan tamales in Guatemala on Wednesday's episode.

Tune in Monday, Aug. 15 as Eight Forty-Eight kicks off a week of specials and rebroadcasts.
