Documentary 7-8 SEVA Award: The Children of Syria

Documentary 7-8 Honorable Mention: We Rise By Lifting Others
From producer Farah of Andrew Carnegie Middle School: My message is that this is the world we live in. A world with drought, war, and disasters. A world where millions of people struggle to survive everyday. People live in remote areas where it’s difficult to call for help and get help. We must treat people the way we want to be treated in a crisis. There are people that are suffering, so I think it’s our job to help them and relieve a bit of that suffering.
