An evening with Gareth Owen, Humanitarian Director at Save the Children

 

The WCIA and Hub Cymru Africa are delighted to welcome Gareth Owen to the Temple of Peace on Tuesday 21 March. A hugely experienced humanitarian professional, Gareth will be centre stage at two separate events:

 

5.00-6.00pm

I'd like a career in humanitarian work - where do I start?

Gareth Owen’s work spans crises and continents. We'll be asking him to reflect on his own career, and to answer questions from anyone interested in starting a career in humanitarian work. This session is strictly limited to 40 participants.

 

6.30-8.00pm

The children of Syria - dealing with the impact of war

Children have faced six deadly years in Syria - whether affected directly by conflict, weakened by malnourishment, or coping with life in a refugee camp. Gareth will discuss the impact of the war on children's wellbeing and rights, and how NGOs like Save the Children can make a difference. He will then answer questions from the audience. This session has a higher limit of 150 participants, so please spread the word among your friends and networks.

 

Originally from Powys, Gareth has worked at Save the Children for 15 years, where he leads a diverse department of more than 200 humanitarian staff. He has led operational responses in every major emergency over the past decade, notably the Iraq conflict, the Asian tsunami and Cyclone Nargis. He previously worked for Concern Worldwide, BSO, Action Contre Le Faim and Oxfam.
