This one is powerful - today we hear from Abdigani Ali and Osman Ahmed, who was one of those shot in the attacks in Christchurch in March 2019. I was due to interview Abdigani Ali about his initiative, the Canterbury Resilience Foundation, and Osman Ahmed came along as well from the Canterbury Muslim Community Trust, so I just decided to interview both of them. This is rare as normally I only talk to one person at a time. But they both have fascinating stories about being immigrants in New Zealand and what that is like. As Osman was shot in the back in the attacks we hear about his memories of the day and listener discretion is advised - as well as that we also here about the many positive results in the community that they both have seen resulting from the incident.
