March 29th, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Presented jointly with The World from PRX & GBH

Those who remain face an array of traumas from armed conflict to hobbled health care services to lack of heat, water, electricity, and food. What are the greatest humanitarian challenges right now, and what can be done to help?
