Coming up on Global Village this weekend - 5th of August


We are starting this week's show with Ellie Stoneley, Author of milky moments

Ellie was inspired to write Milky Moments, her first book, after her daughter was born. Every book they were given depicted bottles, bottle feeding and spoonfuls of mush rather than breastfeeding when it came to showing babies, infants and toddlers being fed.

South Sudan has entered its 6th year of independence.  However given it’s history of conflict the economy has collapsed, malnutrition has soared and hunger continues grip the lives of many. We look at the difficulties the country faces with Fiona McLysaght, Concern Worldwide’s South Sudan Country Director

Finally mother and daughter team Jasmine Elkhershi from and Grainne Brady from tell us about their Bloom winning garden and how they donated their fairy garden to St Therese’s children’s ward in Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe, Galway.  

Tune in from 7pm on Saturday, or better still join in the conversation.
