You see people on TV helping out at disaster sites and may think to yourself, "I wish I could help out like that."
Perhaps you can't go to the area in need, but you still want to help out in your own way.
What is the best way for people in the U.S. (or other developed nations) to help in disaster situations?
So many good-hearted people send money or are part of a project that gives aid to people in crisis.
Those efforts are great, but they may not necessarily last.
How can Americans best review charities they are considering supporting? The concept of "sustainable support" is truly critical in some of these devastated nations and even here in our own country, but where do you even start?
Special guest, Dr. Elizabeth Murray, MD, joined a team that works to train Haitians and pays them for their work.
But before going, she struggled with the idea of spending so much time and effort helping those in another country when she sees first hand, at work, the desperate circumstances so many American children face.
However, when you realize that those children in other countries don't have the basics of shelter, clean water, and sanitation, you realize that they don't have a fighting chance.
We need to at least ensure people have basic necessities before we can expect them to advance as a society.
Discover how Dr. Murray joined the fight for a better world and how you can get involved and help those in need.
We can all make all the world a better place.
