Recorded in front of a live audience, this special episode of the What a Relief #Podcast features B.C. Dodge and co-host Nouf as they chat with a special group of inspiring guests who are part of a program known as TechGirls. This is one episode you don’t want to miss!

The three young women, hailing from different countries across the #MiddleEast and #NorthAfrica, are bright teenage students with highly defined interested in #STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields. Their interests range from web development to programming to robotics to artificial intelligence.

IRUSA's Syed writes in the New Orleans Advocate that The National School Lunch Program has served as an invaluable program since its inception. Last year, it provided more than 22 million kids free or reduced-price lunch while attending school. However, during the summer, this program is unavailable, since school is not in session (for most students, anyway). This especially puts the kids who live in the more than 15 million food-insecure households in the United States at a huge disadvantage, since they are heavily reliant on those school-provided meals.

IRUSA's Chancey writes "I spent the last few days in #PuertoRico with IRUSA’s Disaster Response Team distributing food to survivors of #HurricaneMaria.

The word “survivor” is one we use often in writing about humanitarian work. As I reflect on this trip, it’s a word that catches in my throat. And it should—it is heavy with stories of lost family members and homes blown away. It is a word bursting at its seams with resilience. It is not just a title that points to a tragedy in the past; it is one that is worn like a crown every single day. It is a word that should give us pause."

This is #podcast episode’s guest Tala Ashe is currently making a splash on televisions across the world. She plays Zari a “gray hat activist” on CW’s superhero drama DC’s Legends of Tomorrow who’s become utterly frustrated with the ill-treatment of mother earth. It features her double life intertwined with a struggle to reckon with the emergence of her own dynamic superpowers. Ashe’s role on the show is also dynamic in that her identity as a Muslim woman is intentionally crafted as a part of who and what she is.

On #Eid al-Adha, IRUSA donors will turn worship a blessing for many of those families by sending them a gift of meat.

#Qurbani—also known as #Udhiyah—is IRUSA’s biggest food program. This fresh, halal meat donors share is often the only meat the recipients eat all year. It’s both a rare holiday treat and a nutritional boost.

IRUSA's Lina writes that one-quarter of the world’s population is #anemic, according to the World Health Organization. That includes nearly half of all preschool-age children. In that age group, almost half of all deaths are due to undernutrition—that’s about 3 million children every year.

For many impoverished families, one major factor in their poor health is their inability to buy meat.
