[The Jack Rice Show] Sunday, November 16th: Jack Talks Ebola with ARC President Daniel Wordsworth and Response Manager Wynfred Russell

Click Here to Listen to ARC President Daniel Wordsworth and ARC Ebola Response Manager Wynfred Russell

We have all been watching with growing concern and sadness about the spread of the ebola virus across parts of West Africa including Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.  The U.S. is responding by building 18 additional Ebola Treatment Units in Liberia and has asked the American Refugee Committee (ARC) to help.  They expect to be working in a place called Fish Town, see the map below.

ARC President Daniel Wordsworth and ARC Ebola Response Manager Wynfred Russell will join me on Sunday, November 16th to discuss how one contains and treats an ebola outbreak and the challenging of doing it in a place like Liberia.

The American Refugee Committee is a humanitarian aid agency that works to help people take back control of their lives.  The partnerships they form with our constituents provide essential services and economic opportunities to people who have lost everything due to conflict and disaster.  Each year, ARC works with nearly 2.5 million people in Africa and Asia.

[The Jack Rice Show] November 16th: Jack Talks with a Polish Underground Commando Who Fought the Nazis. 

Click here to listen to Jack's Interview with Polish Underground Commando Julian Kulski Who Fought the Nazis.

 

This is an extraordinary story.  In his book, The Color of Courage, Julian Kulski describes a day-by-day eyewitness account under the brutal Nazi German occupation of Poland. Julian is a 10-year-old Boy Scout when the Germans invade his native Poland to start World War II. At an age when most boys are still playing with toys, Julian begins his own private war against the Germans with small acts of sabotage. At 12, he is recruited into the clandestine Underground Army by his Scoutmaster, and begins training on weapons and military tactics.

By 14, he is holding up German soldiers at gunpoint, has gone on a secret mission into the Warsaw Ghetto to liaise with Jewish resistance leaders, is captured by the Gestapo, beaten and interrogated, sentenced to Auschwitz, rescued, and joins a Commando unit of the Underground Army. At 15, he fights in the Warsaw Uprising, ending the war as a German POW.


This is truly an amazing story and one of those rare opportunities to hear from of the few surviving people who were there, on the ground, fighting the fight.  Just crazy.

[The Jack Rice Show] November 2nd: Jack Interviews a Woman Threatened by Terrorists for Going to School - Part 2.

Click here to listen to Jack's interview with Martine - Part 2.

This is truly an amazing story.  According to Martine Tchitchihe, "On the night of May 9, 2013, I was attacked by a group of roughly 15 men in the city of Maroua, the capital of the Far North region of Cameroon. I though it was a simple case of assault, but after beating me and urinating and spitting on me, the leader of the group said that they were members of the terrorist Islamist group, Boko Haram. He told me to stop helping foreigners, to stop pursuing my studies, to convert to Islam, and to get married because “it’s shameful to still be single at 28 years old.” They warned me that it would be useless to report the assault to the police because the group has “many members among the authorities, so nobody would believe you. We know all about you and your family and there will be reprisals against you all if you talk about this publicly. This is a message for all of your foreign friends: they’re not welcome here and they’ve brought you problems.”
