Filhos do Coração
This video was our contribute to the NGO “Filhos do Coração”.
This NGO is trying to alert people for the current situation in Gana, Africa. Kids in Africa, with no more than 3 or 4 years, are sold from their parent to fisherman for child slavery. They work 14 hours a day, for only a meal, many of this kids die from hunger, disease, drown. If they are sick, sometimes they are feed to crocodiles.
This cause started from a tv reporter, who in 2007 went to Gana on work, and was shocked with what was going on, and so, this became her mission! She started by rescuing some kids but realised that they ware easily replaced by others. Now, she’s trying to go further, by reaching as many people as she can, trying to put an end to this child slavery! She also wrote a book, that is now selling for 15€, and 100% of the money from that, is used to this cause.
