Fantastic news! We are delighted to announce that Dr. Sian WIlliams will be presenting the BBC Radio 4 Appeal for Humanity & Inclusion UK.

The renowned broadcaster and psychologist has pledged her support to help raise funds for Humanity & Inclusion's vital rehabilitation work with injured and disabled people in conflicts such as Ukraine, Yemen, Iraq, and Syria.

The appeal features the story of Hala, a young girl from Yemen who was deeply traumatised after losing her leg in a bombing. It describes the life-changing process of rehabilitation and the huge importance of psychological support in this journey.

In a recorded message to listeners, Dr. Sian Williams explains why she chose to support our appeal:

 

Dr. Sian is inviting listeners to tune in to the appeal, saying:

"It's a fantastic charity... They understand that a prosthetic limb on its own is not enough. For those who are severely traumatised, and often those people are children, long-term psychological support is also vital."

"That's why I'm supporting this charity and I hope that you can as well. Do listen out for us on Sunday 15th January and do, like me, support the incredible work that Humanity & Inclusion UK is doing. Thank you!"

 

How you can listen

You can tune in and listen to the appeal live on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday 15th January at 7.54am and repeated at 9.25pm.

Soon after the first broadcast, the appeal will be available to listen to online.

The appeal will be broadcast again on Radio 4 on Thursday 19th January at 3.27pm.
