WHAT more of a courageous and selfless act can you make than to go to a war torn land where innocent civilians are dying and starving to provide humanitarian aid.

John Chapman from Poole was such a man and along with fellow aid workers including James Kirby and James Henderson and all those from the Central World Kitchen who tragically lost their lives by indiscriminate bombing in Gaza.

They were all such heroes and fine human beings and our condolences and healing thoughts go to their families and friends at this difficult time.
