Children of the Forest:
Amicus Foundation and Danny Paradise
Danny Paradise and Matthew Kelly
We were approached as part of a ongoing partnership between Children of The Forest and the Amicus foundation to do a documentary and campaign to raise awareness and funds for their centre in the north of Thailand.
Since 2005, over 5,000 abandoned, abused, orphaned, neglected or otherwise exploited stateless children have benefited from the protection, healthcare and education of COF. By providing a safe and supportive environment, Children of the Forest strives to provide hope and opportunity to those most in need and create paths to stability and happiness. Love Will Rescue You is dedicated to Children of the Forest, Baan Dada Children’s Home & Community Services, The Anti-Human Trafficking & Child Abuse Center and all those working to support vulnerable children around the world.
With a close personal involvement in the project we chose:
Document the issue thoroughly with interviews on location and with many of the stakeholders surrounding the issues.
Development a communication strategy to approach sensitive subject-matter in way that will engage western audiences and policy makers..
The video has been released to general public and has been used in presentation to the United Nations Children's Fund in New York as part of a international campaign.
"Inspiring, really wonderful. Bravo! The film and the song will move hearts and engage minds."
