Global needs: answers for humanity
Thursday, February 18, 2021, 2:00 PM until 3:00 PM
via Zoom with the Library
Registration is recommended
How to meet the needs of hundreds of millions of people who are worldwide in need of humanitarian assistance?
Coming together as humanity we aim at meeting those needs. To fight hunger, violence, provide shelter and meet basic needs demands resources, international cooperation and local leadership.
Ursula Mueller, a German diplomat, former Executive Director at the World Bank and until this year the United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, will share her insights and show slides of her official field missions to some of the 45 countries with humanitarian situations which she visited during the past 3 years.
You will meet amazing people with dignity in their eyes striving for solutions. You will hear about leaders of armed groups that had displaced an entire village population and how people rebuilt their lives with assistance by the international community.
Free and open to the public. Co-sponsored with Connie Morella Library.
