The Children of Noma by Christian Lajoumard

A modest and sensitive portrayal of children affected by Noma. This little-known and often fatal disease affects 100,000 children per year in Africa, South America, and South Asia. Focusing on Niger, this documentary follows the lives of these children as they are aided by the non-governmental organization Sentinels, which combats the development of the disease in collaboration with local teams.

This is an example of the North/South divide for access to a minimum of care: food and medical attention, but also a message of hope for future generations.
