Emergency engineering charity RedR will be the subject of the weekly Radio 4 appeal this week.
The appeal will receive three transmission slots - the first two on Sunday 26 April at 7.55am and then at 9.26pm, with the final transmission on Thursday 30 April at 3.27pm.
The appeal will be read by BBC World Affairs Correspondent Mike Wooldridge OBE.
RedR said it was: “Delighted to have Mike reading the appeal on our behalf – he has been a World Affairs correspondent for the BBC since 2001 and during this time has witnessed many disasters, seeing first-hand the work done by relief organisations like RedR.
“In October 2005, he reported from Pakistan following the earthquake, where he met a RedR member Paul Wooster who was involved in the immediate relief efforts. Wooster’s wife Kelly was also out in Pakistan and was responsible for setting up RedR’s programme there following the earthquake. Both Wooldridge’s son and daughter have previously attended RedR training courses.
