If Charity begins at home, what’s the impact on Global Aid? - Cancelled

Thursday, April 30, 2020 18:30 - 19:30
Time Zone: Europe/London
Local Time: Thursday, April 30, 2020 18:30 - 19:30

A lecture by Sir Clive Jones CBE, the former chair of Britain’s Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) which brings together 14 leading UK aid agencies to raise money at times of humanitarian crises in poorer countries. Sir Clive now chairs Sightsavers which campaigns to eliminate avoidable blindness in more than 30 countries in the poorest parts of the world. His lecture looks at calls in the popular press for charitable giving to focus more on worthy causes at home. He asks if this a worthwhile belief for the world’s fifth richest economy or a further step towards isolation for post Brexit Britain?
