A charity set up in memory of aid worker Karen Woo who was killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2010 has received a £2,000 boost.
The Karen Woo Foundation, set up in her memory of the 36-year-old Stevenage doctor, was handed a cheque by Professor Narinder Kapur,
Professor Kapur, a Hindu, made the donation in front of a statue of Gandhi in London’s Parliament Square.
Karen’s mum Lynn, who is a trustee of the charity, said: “He’s a very kind and generous supporter and this is his third big donation.
“The donation was his thanks for things going well for him and to celebrate Gandhi’s birthday.”
The foundation has now set its sights on raising £2,000 for an incubator for a Afghanistan hospital and is looking for a new treasurer – visit www.karenwoofoundation.org to find out more.
