CARE CEO Michelle Nunn on Syrian crisis

ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Experts say the fallout from the conflict in Syria is the largest global humanitarian crisis since World War II. The world's largest non-governmental organization, CARE, is addressing it -- and it is headquartered right here in Atlanta. 

11Alive's Brenda Wood sat down with CARE USA CEO Michelle Nunn about her first 100 days on the job.

One way to make a difference, Nunn says, is to bring awareness. CARE is doing just that this weekend in Atlanta. On Saturday, October 10, CARE is hosting a celebration on the Atlanta BeltLine called "Walk for Lasting Change" as part of the International Day of the Girl. 

It will include kid-friendly activities showing what life is like for a girl in a developing country. If you would like to donate to CARE to support humanitarian efforts across the globe, visit CARE.org.
