This film save lives. The Story of Cholera is an engaging, educational animation in which a young boy helps a health worker save his father and then guides his village in preventing cholera from spreading.

The film “went viral” among aid agencies in West Africa, experiencing one of the worst cholera epidemics in recent times in summer of 2012. Aid workers said in 4½ minutes the animation brought more understanding and empowerment to local villagers than hours in community meetings. The film has been seen in more than 190 countries and is now narrated in 23 languages with more in the pipeline.
