Hosted by comedian Colm O’Regan, The World Etc. is a monthly look at issues affecting people around the world. In the sixth episode of our series, Colm chats to Mona Al Shawa of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights and Hala Riziq, who works in the area of development and women's rights in the Gaza Strip. During a rare trip away from their homeland, Mona & Hala speak about the challenging nature of their work and the daily reality of living under a blockade that has left 2million people trapped in an area the size of County Louth with limited access to food, water & electricity. The World Etc. is brought to you by Trócaire, one of Ireland’s leading charities. Music by glossolalia (https://www.facebook.com/glossolaliaband/) .
