Bob Handby

Australian Red Cross aid worker and ambassador

Bob Handby helps to raise awareness of the global need for safe water and sanitation facilities — because without these simple things, disease spreads and people die, when they could have survived. His first mission with Red Cross was to Uganda in 1984.

I’ve seen situations you wouldn’t even want to imagine.
