“As a former refugee, issues relating to education, the rule of law and principles of human rights are important to me. When I was invited to donate to the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, I gratefully accepted. The institute provides a facility for education, research and scholarship in human rights law and was opened by the late Kofi Annan. Our induction and recognition of our contribution was a very special day for my wife and I – as is today.”
