Author John Enright on Humanitarian Aid Missions in Wartime
In this episode of the Disaster Podcast, we invited author John Enright to join us. John has been involved in humanitarian relief missions since soon after the fall of the Soviet Union. He’s been engaged in all levels of the process from procurement, to implementation, to on-site delivery. He’s even driven some of the trucks himself.
John has worked in over forty occupations, ranging from grave digger, cocktail barman and tree-surgeon, to professional poker player and is currently employed as a government ‘Transactor’ covering major infrastructure programmes across the country. His adventures continue, as he has ridden a British Army motorbike across India to support several children’s charities and worked in a mental health facility in Manhattan. These experiences, along with his convoy days, are part of his outrageous auto-biography, ‘The Benevolence of Rogues’. He writes under the pen name “John Righten.”
Join co-hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis as they chat with John about his most recent adventures delivering aid to refugees from the war in Ukraine.
