Johannesburg, 22 February 2016 –  We heard from Southern Africa Regional Director, Father David Holdcroft SJ, on the JRS half an hour radio slot on Radio Veritas, last week Monday, 15th February 2016.

Father Holdcroft SJ, gave a broad description of the work JRS does across the Region in Angola, Malawi, South Africa and Zimbabwe. He spoke passionately about the work JRS does in the Region, what the plight is of displaced people in Southern Africa and what our efforts are at responding to this need.

The radio programme is aired weekly, at 16:30 PM every Monday, and is hosted by the JRS Southern Africa Regional Communications Officer, Gushwell Brooks. The podcast of the prior week’s broadcast will be made available every Monday and this opportunity will be used to remind our audience of who would be interviewed next.
