USAID’s Shah Discusses Role Of Faith-Based Organizations In Humanitarian Aid

PBS “Religious and Ethics Newsweekly” host Kim Lawton on Friday interviewed USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah, who spoke about the role of faith-based organizations in humanitarian relief efforts. “We want to do our work, which is about protecting people who are vulnerable around the world and expanding the reach of human dignity, as broadly as possible. And often it is communities of faith, faith-based organizations, that are there working when the rest of the world has forgotten about people who have no other place to turn,” Shah said (2/17). An extended version of the interview also is available online (2/17).
