Discussion looks at Hands for Humanity

The next Post-Bulletin Dialogues gathering at the Rochester Public Library will be a week from today, with a program on the Hands for Humanity medical relief effort.

The free Nov. 22 program will start at 7 p.m. in the library auditorium.

Hands for Humanity is a Rochester-based volunteer effort that provides free medical care to impoverished children in Ecuador. Earlier this year, P-B reporter Jeff Hansel and photographer Jerry Olson joined several volunteers on a mission to Portoviejo, Ecuador, and their reporting in April helped focus public attention on this program.

A Hands for Humanity volunteer will talk about the program, as will Hansel and Olson, joined by Post-Bulletin Managing Editor Jay Furst.

Post-Bulletin Dialogues is a monthly series of informal meetings on stories or issues in the news.
