The Royal Geographical Society – Singapore presents: “A Road Less Travelled” featuring Linda Cruse, who will share her experience of initiating and participating in frontline humanitarian work in disaster-struck regions across the world.
Please join us at the Hollandse Club Singapore between 7.30pm and 8.30pm on 25 May 2023 (Thursday) for an evening of insightful recounts of the challenges faced by various communities in post-disaster recovery, and inspirational stories of how they have managed to overcome these difficulties.
The last two decades have seen Linda taking the road less travelled, living among people in the most distressed places on earth, from the snowy Himalayas to the deserts of the Sahara and in the aftermath of tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and typhoons. Linda has worked with survivors in refugee camps and war zones, escaped from a rebel army, been held at gunpoint, caught in a landslide, survived severe hypothermia, drank three-day-old urine to save a life and even sutured her own face.
Linda’s life purpose is to uplift the most vulnerable people at the most challenging moment of their lives. Her ground-breaking approach is to engage and facilitate people to find creative and sustainable economic solutions that have the power to raise up communities from the grip of poverty and from the depths of disaster. By working with the best and brightest – those who excel through innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit – Linda empowers students and business experts worldwide to create real and lasting legacies and to use their strength and influence as a force for good.
