Keeping Families Together, a short film for One Sky Foundation – Thailand 2016

In December 2015 I traveled to Sangkhlaburi, in Thailand, where I had the honor to join One Sky Foundation, a local NGO working to meet the needs of vulnerable children.

Sangkhlaburi, on the Thai Burma border, is not a big town, but more than 600 children are living in 17 children’s homes, away from the love and care of their families. None of the homes are legally registered.

In 2015, Social Services and One Sky Foundation interviewed all of the children, to find out that 90% of them have at least one living parent.

Most of the children told us that they live in the children’s home because their parents are poor.

We believe this is wrong

At 85 years old, organic raisin farmer and lifelong river advocate Walt Shubin is not slowing down. He has dedicated the last 65 years of his life to restoring California’s once-mighty San Joaquin River to the wild glory he remembers as a young boy. Driven by his passion for the river, and despite worn out knees and joints, he takes us on a journey to help us understand why this river is so important to all of us as well.
