Lorna Dueck (CEO of YES TV®) is back from Sri Lanka where she and a film crew reported on a series of coordinated suicide bombings claimed by ISIS, on April 21, 2019. The team brings back stories of heart break and miracles in the aftermath of the Easter Sunday terrorist attacks of eight bombs ripped through churches,luxury hotels and housing complexes.
As the leader of Canada’s religious broadcaster YES TV®, Lorna was deeply convicted that YES TV® needed to tell this virtually forgotten story from Sri Lanka, where religious harmony is no where in sight – and tension remain high, “We need to be part of the recovery process, and study how those victimized work to be good people who care for the vulnerable and repair the wounded.”
