Last year, when we began publicising the excellent book From Kabul with Love, we described the subject of the book, Dr Howard Harper, as being “one of New Zealand’s unsung heroes”. The wonderful thing is that since then, Howard has become a lot more “sung”!

Last month, Howard was again honoured, this time with the Supreme Award at the KEA 2011 World Class New Zealand Awards.

Here’s an interview from the KEA event in which he pays tribute to his faith and the reasons why he has invested his life in helping the people of Afghanistan and nearby countries (and continues to do so)…
