Baroness Cox of Queensbury was appointed a Life Peer in 1982. A former deputy speaker of the House of Lords, she is a tireless advocate for international human rights. She visits the most forgotten people in the world, often in highly dangerous conditions, to carry their stories of abuse and persecution back to the west. She has been under fire many times while taking aid to war victims in Armenia, Sudan and Indonesia. Vice President of the Royal College of Nursing, Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, recipient of the Wilberforce Award and of the Commander Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland, she has also received honorary degrees from universities on three continents. Her motivation is profoundly Christian: "Faith without deeds is dead; love without action is dead."
Freelance author or co-author of more than 60 books, Lela Gilbert has also written many song lyrics and several novels. She is mother of two sons and lives in California.
