This week on NOW: The story of Dominic MacSorely of the humanitarian aid agency Concern Worldwide. He's part of the battle to feed the starving people of Afghanistan and fighting to make a difference in the rebuilding of a nation.

In Africa, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Bill Gates, Sr., head of the world’s largest foundation, join forces, hoping to throw a spotlight on the deepening AIDS crisis. Video journalist Jamila Paksima follows their journey.

And, NPR’s Nina Totenberg speaks with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
