Sunday, January 26 at 12:00 pm NGOS: CAN THEY SAVE THE WORLD? PRESENTED BY LYDIA GANS The role of major mainstream NGOs, that is, Non-Governmental Organizations such as the Red Cross, CARE, and the American Friends Service Committee -- heretofore a neutral role focusing on taking care of the physical needs and human rights of peoples around the world -- is in transition today because of the world political situation. This is the distillation of a recently published book entitled: A Bed for the Night by David Rieff (a war correspondent). Drawing from this book and her own experiences in Vietnam and other third-world countries, Lydia will lead a discussion on modern day NGOs.
