London, United Kingdom ( The Kurdistan Regional Government Representation staff, Hawre Wahid and Shang Aziz, have participated in the London marathon competition alongside 47,000 others in an initiative by the representation to raise awareness and collect funds for the UK Thalassaemia Society.

This comes after a delegation from the organisation visited the KRG UK representation and met with Karwan Jamal Taher High representative of the Kurdistan Regional Government to the UK.
