The other half

The Great Shift turned out pretty bad for Kevin Bartles. He had been enjoying champagne in his Madison Avenue apartment when it hit, and he suddenly found himself in the body of a woman who lived in an impoverished slum in a third world country. His slight buzz was replaced hunger pains. With no access to media and with no ability to speak the local language, his only way to know that he wasn’t the only one in a strange body was the general confusion and chaos of the other people around him. It was two months before the American embassy reopened and another one before they were able to determine Kevin was actually who he said he was. He had learned in those twelve weeks how the other half actually lived; the struggles they went through. He found himself dedicating his time, wealth, and entire life to improving the situations of the misfortunate.
