For a silk weaving community in central Madagascar, new access to income from global markets preserves an ancient tradition, empowers women, and radically improves the futures of their children. The income generated from the 3-day folk art fair in America would normally take 15 years to earn back in Madagascar. A Peace Corp volunteer becomes part of their community and helps lead the weavers to a better life.

UNITED NATIONS FOUNDATION

A New Picture of Health, narrated by Jane Goodall (26-minutes) – Winner of Three Telly Awards

Washington, DC — September 16, 2010 — National Geographic Society headquarters — The United Nations Foundation premieres new documentary about the The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and its ongoing impact in saving millions of lives – particularly those of women and children – across the developing world.

“In less than a decade, close to six million lives have been saved by Global Fund programs,” said Timothy E. Wirth, President of the UN Foundation. “This documentary paints a compelling picture of why continued support will help the Global Fund save and improve the well-being of mothers and children across the globe.”

Narrated by Dr. Jane Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, the film chronicles how U.S. investments in health are empowering communities and putting an end to diseases of poverty. The film includes personal stories from community health workers, patients, and community leaders to show the impact of the Global Fund’s programs in Ethiopia, Rwanda and Indonesia.

Shot on location by photographer and filmmaker David Evans in April and May of 2010, he said at the premier screening: “My hope is that hearing these personal stories will make clear that real progress is being made and that only our continued commitment will prevent a return to much darker days. You see, people are getting better, and they are taking advantage of their renewed health do what anyone in this audience would do: they are taking care of their families, they’re going back to work, and they’re lifting their communities. And this is important because strong communities make for prosperous nations, and prosperous nations are much better able to sustain themselves and to contribute to a global economy.”

Within 24 hours of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Evans landed in Port au Prince to document the UN’s response to the tragedy. Among the first outsiders to reach the most devastated areas, Evans videos and stills were used to raise money and to provide a first hand account of what the UN needed to face the immediate aftermath of the tragedy in which hundreds of UN personnel were killed along with the 200,000+ Haitians. While filming video and shooting still images, Evans flew several missions in and out of Haiti in a jet donated by UNF Chairman Ted Turner, ferrying out injured and stranded Americans, and bringing back supplies to the UN Compound.
