On Friday Carmen talked with Ambassador Mark Lagon about The Global Fight to end AIDS, TB and Malaria – focusing on tuberculosis. Carmen met Mark as an outgrowth of spending time with her today’s guest, Jenny Dyer. If you’ve ever wondered why, in a world of such great abundance, vulnerable people die of hunger and other preventable, treatable diseases, Jenny Dyer knows.
Jesus’ command is clear: we are called to feed all of God’s children. But is that possible? Twenty-five years ago, 23.3 percent of the world’s population lived in hunger. Today, that number has dropped to 12.9 percent―giving rise to the renewed hope that what once seemed unthinkable is now within reach. The challenges are great, but the fight to eliminate malnutrition and hunger is one we can win. Today, Jenny Dyer, co-editor of The End of Hunger shares a comprehensive picture of the current situation―the latest facts and figures are presented alongside compelling stories, both from those engaged in the fight against hunger and from the hungry themselves. Here too are clear steps for action by individuals, families, churches, and communities. This book is designed to inform and inspire you to get involved in the gospel work of eradicating global malnutrition and feeding the hungry.

Then, in the second half of today’s show, Carmen talks with David Aikman about developing stories in Hong Kong, Syria, Lebanon and Brexit.
