Watch part twoIn the midst of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, humanitarian Steve Sosebee established the Palestine Children's Relief Fund to alleviate the difficult conditions facing injured, sick and impoverished children.
"I'm not able to do everything for everyone, but for those we are able to reach and have a positive impact on, I feel that's what fuels my drive every morning when I get up," he says.
His commitment to making a difference comes from the values of his parents and growing up in the American Midwest.
Exposed to social inequalities from a young age, Sosebee recognised the need for compassion and social justice in the world.
It was not until meeting a boy who was injured by a bomb and returning from his first visit to the Middle East region that he felt a responsibility to act.
Connecting injured and suffering children to skilled caregivers has developed over 20 years into today's Palestine Children's Relief Fund.
Steve Sosebee talks to Riz Khan about how his past struggles and enduring persistence to serve children continues to shape his own life as well as his family's.
This episode of One on One aired from Saturday, May 29, 2010.
