  Christine Orengo 16 December 2004  
On continuing her partner’s work in Madagascar

Ten years ago the environmental campaigner Andrew Lees went missing in Madagascar while campaigning against plans for a huge mining operation on the island.

For days people looked for him, including his fiancée Christine Orengo who flew in from Britain to help. He was eventually found in the forest having collapsed and died from heat exhaustion.

A Trust was founded in his name by Christine and it's gone on to help, and educate, hundreds of local people. Christine talks to Jenni about it's work and about her life after Andrew.
