Christopher’s knowledge and interest of Africa stems from having traveled extensively across the continent to countries such as Nigeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Kenya and Sudan. His travels in Africa had left Christopher ‘struck by the resourcefulness of many communities, who often achieved so much with so little, typically amidst an unhelpful political environment’. Subsequently, Christopher has been a keen supporter of practical and tangible development projects that make a real and long-lasting difference to African communities-and as a result has led him to join the Bread and Water for Africa UK board of trustees.
