Almost 100 years ago, a group of Americans answered the need to create an organization that would respond to the first refugee crisis of the 20th Century. Near East Relief-now Near East Foundation (NEF)-played a crucial role in saving a generation of Armenians. Today, NEF works with people of the Middle East and Africa to build community projects under the control of the local people. This two-part episode offers a glimpse into the group's fascinating past as remembered by a survivor of the Armenian genocide. We also travel to Morocco, where Berber women are teaming with NEF to discover a life that includes more than hauling wood and water. In Egypt, you'll meet a former drug dealer transformed by the renaissance of Cairo's oldest slum. He credits his family's survival to an amazing NEF project that spans from music to construction.
