Two inspiring Americans to read about today:
I. Saving a Kashmiri Village After Remaking His Life, NYT, June 25 2009, tells the story of Todd Shea and his hospital, Comprehensive Disaster Relief Services, in Chikar. There is a video-essay attached to the story that you should watch. Shea’s flickr stream. And a link for you to donate directly to his effort.
II. Kathy Kelly and a group of volunteers have just returned from a visit to Pakistan where they toured some of the IDP camps. They belong to Voices for Creative Non-Violence. You can read their reports on the site but I want to highlight Kelly’s latest, Now We See You, Now We Don’t. There are also photo galleries from their visit.
