Global Acts of Unity

I started Global Acts of Unity after my brother David Haines was murdered by ISIS in 2014. He was a humanitarian worker helping refugees. He was held for 18 months in which he was tortured and brutalised before being beheaded by ISIS and a video of his death put on the internet.
My brother's murder was an act of hatred. The extremists of all types are looking to spread hatred, discord and division in our communities. GAU was set up to stand against hatred. GAU stands for tolerance, unity and understanding between communities.

GAU visits schools, colleges, places of worship and organisations all over the country. I give presentations telling what happened to my brother and about the rejection of the extremist narratives and hatred.
