Guest: Dr. James Mayfield is the co-founder of CHOICE Humanitarian and professor emeritus of Public Administration and Middle East studies at the University of Utah. The recovery effort in Nepal has been stymied by the remoteness of many communities in dire need of food and shelters. The mountainous terrain is a formidable barrier. Humanitarian groups also report disorganization and government bureaucracy are preventing resources from reaching those in need. Utah-based CHOICE Humanitarian has managed to rebuild key structures in some of the more remote villages with remarkable speed, using a network of employees and volunteers already on the ground when the earthquake struck.
