As we celebrate a holiday that gives thanks for a bounty of things, a Cedar Rapids native is part of an effort to inform Iowans and others about hunger in the world. Nancy Aossey leads the International Medical Corps humanitarian organization which is part of a larger group called the “Better Safer World.” She says they hope to engage citizens at the very grassroots level on the issue of global poverty and why it impacts all of us in this country. Aossey says Iowans live in the breadbasket of the world, and may not think they can make a difference. But, she says they can. She says we’re interdependent and the things that impact other countries impact all of us. She says if we’re able to help other countries get on their feet, it will make it a better, safer world for all of us. Aossey says one person can make a difference. She says there are many things Iowans can do to participate at the grassroots level. For more information, surf to: bettersaferworld.org.
