VVEngage Fellow Joelle Abou Farhat spoke with VV President and CEO Alyse Nelson about the devastating impact of not only the explosion in Beirut, but the lack of formal response in the country. She offered perspective on the government's response, and shed light on why Lebanese women - at the center of recovery efforts today - are always ready to serve their community at a moment's notice.

And while her city recovers from the shock of the explosion, she discussed how this crisis demonstrates yet again why women are so crucial in political office. Tune into this emotional discussion today.
