October 2020 – Zimbabwe – Unite to fight – The Global Fund Short Documentary Production.
So stoked to be involved in the last minute production of this call to action by The Global Fund in Zimbabwe, during the Covid 19 Pandemic. With less than 2 weeks of planning, endless paperwork and meetings with stakeholders. Myself along with other creatives, planned and produced a short documentary for Rooftop Productions, The Global Fund.
When 17-year-old Melissa’s school closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic she was cut off from her studies and had to work to help support her family. Due to school closures and lockdown measures, adolescent girls and young women like Melissa face increased barriers to access health services and are further at risk of gender-based violence, early pregnancy and contracting #HIV. #UniteToFight
