Jennifer is to enter university soon, but is taking time off to visit Pakistan to bring the 4 messages of WASUP and climate change:

  • Raising awareness of the scourge of plastic and impacts of climate globally on humans, animals and the environment.

  • Educating children and communities

  • Picking litter

  • Putting pressure on governments to force companies to decrease plastic packaging and supporting a green economy.


She arrives on the 26th March and is travelling to Pakistan with the world renowned cleft team, ably led by Dr Riaz. She will visit the incredible medical projects that Midland International Aid Trust UK, her sponsors through the Gatrad Bursary, have set up with the Decent Welfare Society over the last 20 years www.miatwalsall.org.uk .

She will be carrying out many litter picking activities and will be giving inspirational talks to all ages.
