Part One: Afghan Kids Receiving Medical Treatment in Charlotte
We’ll meet a 17 year old Afghan youth who is visiting the Charlotte area to receive medical treatment along with several other Afghan young people. We’ll talk with Zaman Abdul Rashid, and two members of the organization who made his trip possible about some of the typical hardships that Afghan youths face medically and in terms of education. We’ll also hear about the mutual education and understanding about Afghan and American culture that has happened as a result of bringing children here for medical treatment.
Guests
Zaman Abdul Rashid – 17 year old receiving medial treatment in Charlotte
Patsy Wilson – President and Summer Coordinator for Solace for the Children
Carol McKay – Member of the board of directors for Solace for the Children

Part Two: Erica McGee and Grits: The Musical
Actress and singer Erica McGee got tired of waiting for other people to hire her so she decided to become a one-person theatre company. She has produced her own projects such as A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, Decade DIVA, Jazzy DIVA and now McGee is introducing audiences to her latest project called GRITS: The Musical. It’s based on best-selling author Deborah Ford’s novel Grits: Friends are Forevah. Erica McGee slows down long enough to talk about her latest project.

  1. The first part of the show was particularly inspiring.

  3. These group used to have the name Lake Normal Children Relef.

    Read what the rest of the world thinks of them in the comments section of this yutube video about them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0j2jkkPFWgE

    Read the comments.

    They don’t go back to Belaruse now. Belaruse in 2004 stopped all international adoptions. This organization was there taking kids in the name of “aid” and bringing them to the US. Now they don’t give aid because they can’t take the children.

    Now they take children and give “aid” from other countriess since Belaruse won’t let them keep some anymore calling such international adoptions; “disgusting”
