Ahmad Al-Rashid brings us a first-hand account of the plight of refugees.
With ISIS knocking on the door, Ahmad fled his home, made a dangerous (and illegal) journey from Aleppo in Syria, and eventually found himself in Surrey. He filmed his journey, which was recently shown on BBC2 as part of a documentary called Exodus. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p040jjm8
He’ll be speaking about his 21st century challenges, and also his work with UNICEF.
