In 1984, Sir Bob Geldof became aware of the Ethiopian famine, whereby just south of Europe, the richest continent in the world, 32 million people were dying of hunger.
Bob wanted to help, so he did what he believed was the best he could do personally: he wrote a song to raise funds - ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’. It became an international phenomenon and raised millions of dollars for the cause. This led to the creation of The Band Aid Trust, of which Bob is still Chairman, and from which he went on to launch the biggest music concerts in the world in London and Philadelphia - Band Aid.
Throughout his outstanding career, Sir Bob has been committed to determined charity work and activism. He has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 8 times, more than any living nominee, and was honoured with a knighthood by HM Queen Elizabeth II; received the Nobel Man of Peace award from Mikhail Gorbachev; was awarded The North-South human rights award in Portugal; and awarded the medal of Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France. Sir Bob is internationally recognised as a leading authority on world politics, international and current affairs, music, humanitarian issues, philanthropy, poverty, human rights and Africa.
