Mit søde barn

Katia Forbert Petersen, Denmark, 1987

22 min.DK/DocumentaryDevelopment aid films

Every day 40,000 children die in the third world. This film is a very intimate and personal demonstration of how this situation can be changes. An inexpensive pack of salt and sugar will quite often be able to save a life. The film does not discuss what would happen if all children survived, but the birth rate could perhaps come down if mothers experienced that their babies lived.
