We will not forget the efforts of English-born fashion model and actress, Jean Rosemary Shrimpton.
Jean Shrimpton and others saw how their country and other influential countries were keeping quiet as millions of Biafran children dies, at a time when social media was not there to help inform and draw attention, Jean started ‘Save Biafra Campaign’ by signing petition protest and organising protest to help spread the message and stop the war.
We will forever remember.
