Two week's ago was World Humanitarian Day. To acknowledge and celebrate the generosity of humanitarian workers, the above short film was made.

It is a collaborative film shot in over 40 countries in under 9 weeks, on a shoestring budget - with the goal of showing the enormous diversity of places, faces and endeavours of humanitarian aid workers in 2010.

It was filmed by humanitarian staff and freelance filmmakers from around the globe (over 50 contributors in total) with all time donated.

In The Adventures of Mali & Keela the story 'Keela's Surprise' shows generosity in a simple way that kids will relate to.
