KurdSpeaker this month is Lauren Newton, a volunteer Social Work Consultant who was contracted by an Non Government Organisation in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq in April 2012 to set up and train staff in a new Child Protection and Foster Care department, a totally new concept in that part of the world. Hear about why Lauren and her husband John (formally a TV1 news reporter), went to Kurdistan and what they encountered there, day to day living challenges, difficulty liaising between the Christian agency and the government, the amazing people and beautiful country.
