The fight of Sentinelles against the noma
Two students from Eracom (Lausanne) questioned by the noma
For their master’s thesis, Marie-Lou and Hervé, two (former) students wanted to film the work of Sentinelles in favor of the child victims of noma.
Shot in Burkina Faso, they filmed in particular Marietta, a child whose very survival was threatened. Greeted at the Ouagadougou Reception Center, they accompanied her until she returned to her family. They also followed two other girls who came to Switzerland for surgery.
This film, “A visage découvert”, was premiered in September. Hervé and Marie-Lou wishing to show it in festivals, it is not yet accessible to the public. The video above, lasting 5 minutes, is an extract.
Take a tour of Burkina Faso in the footsteps of Marietta, and see how the work of Sentinelles offers the victims of the noma the prospects for a smiling future.
