Americares CEO on Liberia and Our Own Backyard


When disaster strikes on the other side of our planet, often help comes from Connecticut. Americares of Stamford has come to the aid of millions of people since its founding in 1982, and this past Sunday on Face the State, we met its relatively new CEO, Michael Nyenhuis.


Nyenhuis talked about the mission of Americares, carried about by 150 staffers, who travel to some of the poorest places on earth to assist those in need. Nyenhuis shared with me his recent journey to Liberia, a nation battling a deadly Ebola epidemic, and the work Americares is doing right here in our state.


It’s a fascinating conversation. Also on Face the State this past weekend: Republican reaction to Governor Malloy’s budget, the latest on a major development in Hartford, and our flashback takes us back to 1980, when thousands of screaming teenage girls tried to meet a teen idol. The reporter who filed that story? Bill O’Reilly.
