Foreign aid not only saves millions of lives, it helps build a safer and more stable world for us all. But today those investments are at risk. Based in Washington, D.C., Mercy Corps senior leader Dr. Dafna Rand joins us to offer her insight on why foreign aid is worth the investment—and why America should continue to be a humanitarian leader that shows compassion for those in need.
