Head of MTK Foundation Fearon Joins ‘Remembering Srebrenica’ Delegation
Head of the MTK Foundation Spencer Fearon will join the ‘Remembering Srebrenica’ delegation in Bosnia and Srebrenica later this month.
‘Remembering Srebrenica’ is a British charitable initiative aimed at building more positive, cohesive communities and learning lessons from the horror of the 1995 Srebrenica Massacre.
The charity’s work is three-fold: 1. Bringing communities together to remember Srebrenica through organising commemoration events in the UK. 2. Taking people on our ‘Lesson from Srebrenica’ education visits programme to learn lessons from the survivors of the genocide. 3. Creating community champions who pledge to stand up to hatred and intolerance in their communities.
As he prepares to travel with the charity’s delegation on March 24, Fearon is proud to be involved in an organisation targeting positive change.
Fearon said: “It’s a real honour for me to be invited by ‘Remembering Srebrenica.’
“I was at a remembrance service for those massacred in the war and I was with the Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth affairs; Emily Thornberry.
“They said they would like to have me involved and fair play to MTK Foundation, who made a donation to help go out there and give a couple of speeches. I’m really grateful.
“The things the MTK Foundation have done in a short space of time is great and now I’m going as part of this peace envoy to Bosnia and it’s touching for me.”
