The program includes her journeys to UNICEF's missions in...展开Bangladesh, Somalia and Viet Nam and it includes interviews with Larry King and her longtime friend, Robert Wolders. With great warmth and kindness, this compassionate woman speaks of her triumphs and disappointments throughout her life. Ms. Hepburn also expresses her deep satisfaction with being able to provide her service as a UNICEF Ambassador.
Included on this DVD is one 26-minute episode of Views on World Poverty.
Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world, and less than a third of its population has access to any health care. Malnutrition remains the main cause of maternal and infant mortality and well over half of all pregnant women suffer from iron deficiency anemia. This program follows two traditional birth attendants as they try to persuade women to take iron folate supplements and visit hospitals, which is often prohibitively expensive. The program also visits Tanzania, where it is malaria that is blamed for the increase in anemia which, in some areas, affects 93 per cent of children under five.
