18-year-old Millie Rose, who first visited Nicaragua in 2015, is spending 4 months working in CEPAD’s office before starting an International Development course at Portsmouth University. We asked her to share a little about her impressions of CEPAD’s work — particularly after the recent flooding and the political situation.
“I’ve been guilty over the last few months of shirking my responsibilities towards a cause that is very close to my heart. On the eve of International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, I’ve decided to renew my commitment to this cause, to seeking justice and equal rights for everyone who calls the Holy Land home.” Sarah Baron writes about how we can reinvigorate our support for Palestine.
“The idea was beautiful and crazy. The logistics alone would be an organisational nightmare. The risk assessment would run for pages. It would be a five-month, 3,300 kilometres trek across eleven countries with mountains, rivers and seas to navigate.” Amos trustee Robert Cohen writes the forword for ‘Walking To Jerusalem’ – Justin Butcher’s book about his experience of walking from London to Jerusalem as part of Amos Trust’s ‘Just Walk To Jerusalem’ project in 2017.
United Nations Universal Children’s Day has been celebrated on 20th November each year, since 1954. So, 20th November seems as good a day as any to raise awareness of how Palestinian children, under Israeli Occupation, are being denied their basic rights and, effectively, having their childhoods stolen from them by the Occupation and the policies surrounding it. Sarah Baron writes.
Orthopaedic surgeon and Gaza Freedom Flotilla participant — the inspirational Dr Swee Ang joined us at Amos Day back in September. Swee was the first female orthopaedic consultant appointed to the St Bartholomew and the Royal London Hospitals and is a co-founder of Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP). Gill Hewitt spoke to her.
