It’s a big world out there and often we are so caught up in what ‘s happening in our own neighborhoods, that we forget to look at the bigger picture.
Watch Dr. Richard Besser, chief medical and health director at ABC News, talk to genConnect about how a trip to Bangladesh changed his view on global health care and how you can get involved in helping people around the world:
“It can be overwhelming when you think about the conditions in so many part of the world, but when you break it down to the level of the individual and when you can tell a story to people that lets them see the face of someone around the world … it makes it real and empowers them to make a difference,” Dr. Besser said.
There are many small actions you can do that can greatly impact an individual, a neighborhood, even an entire country that is in need of something as simple to us as fresh water. Groups such as Be the Change: Save a Life, can help you find out how you, too, can make an impact on the world.
