Resilience in the face of tragedy

Resilience in the face of tragedy

The ravages of war and famine, the horror of living through a category 5 hurricane, and the call for us to care – even for those we don’t know.

We take you to three trouble spots in the world – rebuilding in Bahamas, giving medical attention to the victims of disease and war in Yemen, and a filmmaker takes us inside a refugee camp in Greece.

In all of this tragedy, here is one common denominator: the resilient human spirit.
