Global Village this weekend

On this weekends Global Village we hear from Roja Fazaeli and Joel Hanisek a US-Iranian-Irish family on how Donald Trumps travel ban impacts on their family.

Did you know that every 2 minutes someone, somewhere, hears those dreaded words “you have leprosy”. It’s the world’s oldest known communicable disease and its very name strikes fear, even though it is completely curable.  We chat to Ken Gibson, CEO of Leprosy Mission Ireland about how the fight against the disease can be won.  

Finally we have some amazing music on the show Kiruu is a multi-instrumentalist and singer of Irish-English origins whose eclectic sound has been formed with influence from his East African upbringing and European roots. 

Join us from 7pm on Saturday or better still join the conversation.
