David Thomas

David Thomas graciously agreed to help Mende after a collaborative humanitarian mission between HART and The Mende Nazer Foundation in Sudan during January 2016.

He is the Projects and Logistics Coordinator of the International NGO, HART (Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust) where he has worked with Baroness Cox for 12 years. In that work he has visited the Nuba Mountains many times, first in 2007. His greatest pleasure is “…communicating (and assisting) the wonderful creativity, independence, energy and intelligence of indigenous partners on the ground, people who are not going to ‘lie down and die’, nor are they going to let their people do so.” He enjoys communicating by word and drama. He has been a priest of the Anglican Church for over 30 years of which 20 years were as a Chaplain in the Royal Navy.
