World Day of Social Justice

The final day of my Parallel Lives programme falls on Saturday 20th February – UN World Day of Social Justice

From 12:00 midday I’ll be co-hosting a Pakistan Showcase with Andy Goss, UK author, journalist and humanitarian.

Andy has written a novel about the devastating 2005 Pakistan Earthquake that draws on his own experiences while in the affected region to support the humanitarian effort.
