Brain Burrough mentioned at the Zoom meeting that we have been invited to join Havelock North Rotary’s Zoom meeting to hear Abbas Nazari speak on Monday, September 6th.
The meeting will commence at 5pm and conclude before 6pm.
One of the children on that fateful voyage, The Tampa, was Abbas Nazari who has now published a book about his childhood in Afghanistan and the circumstances which drove his parents to find a safer place for their family to live thousands of kilometres away.
Abbas and his family settled as refugees in New Zealand. Whist a specific RSVP is not requested, out of courtesy, please advise David Smith if you wish to join the meeting, particularly as there is a limit of 100 attendees.
