Episode #58 Capturing Crisis & Hope in Bangladesh with Jenelle Eli, Amanda Nieman and Brad Zerivitz

In this episode of Intercross the Podcast we sit down with Jenelle Eli, Director of International Communications, Amanda Nieman, Bangladesh Program Officer and Brad Zerivitz, a Photographer and Director of Video Services, all at the American Red Cross.  They recently spent two weeks in Bangladesh, capturing stories of the crisis in Cox’s Bazaar. Since August 2017, more than a million people have fled Rakhine state, Myanmar to Bangladesh because of violence. We spoke last week with ICRC’s outgoing head of delegation in Myanmar about the situation there and in this conversation, we talk about the other side of the border. How do you visually capture a crisis of such magnitude? How is the Red Cross movement responding? How does disaster preparedness and volunteers play a role? And in such desperate circumstances, what stories of hope rise to the top? Hosted by Niki Clark and Sara Owens.
