Rising Hope
Mark Seijbel's insight:

Most Australians are aware that we provide aid to foreign countries but most of us do not know how that aid is distributed, who gets it or how it is used. In a special presentation documentary, presenter Pip Russell travels to some of the most remote and desperately poor parts of Cambodia to meet the people who benefit from our support.

Shot in the northern province of Ratanakiri along the border with Vietnam and in the southern region of Koh Kong, Pip visits remote villages to witness first hand the Australian supported aid agencies, remarkable efforts as they work at raising the standards of health, education and wellbeing.
