We are embarking on the journey of a lifetime and we want you to be part of it. About a year ago I heard Alang Geh, the founder of Caring Hands, tell his story and describe his own experiences while visiting the island. He told me about the people of Toube and how they do not have access to basic medical care and how extremely difficult it is for them to receive the treatment and medicine they are in desperate need of. I was heartbroken by these stories, and it was then that I decided to take action. I decided to see for myself how these people live and the struggles that they endure on a regular basis. This film will follow my team as we see first-hand the living conditions and how Caring Hands helps the people we meet on our trip in January 2020. We will be traveling to Cameroon, Africa where after landing in the city, we will travel out to the community where Caring Hands will be setting up the medical clinic. 

I need your help. In order for this project to happen, there is a large financial requirement. If you are able to, I would be so blessed if you could contribute financially to this project using the Official GoFundMe [see below]. I also need help in promoting the project. I invite you to connect with us on social media and share it with others.

MEET THE

DIRECTOR

Mark Perry is a Senior Film and Moving Image major on the Cinematography & Editing track, originally from Lancaster, PA. He is president of CRU at Stevenson and had the awesome opportunity to help launch United Church. After first hearing about the community in Toube last year, he has been determined to tell their story. He is super excited for the opportunities this project is creating, and the group of people that this project will bring together.

Say what?

“This documentary will employ a self-reflexive, cinema-verite style approach to tell the story of the Caring Hands Africa organization’s humanitarian work with a small community in Cameroon, Africa. Not simply an observational ethnographic document, the film will explore concepts of immigration and social responsibility through the eyes of the film’s director”.
