Despair and Hope A documentary series by Christoph von Toggenburg - 30 min.

In 2010 Christoph went to South India to support a National Awareness campaign to help mentally destitute women. The project was carried out in connection with 'The Banyan', India's largest organisation for mentally destitute women. The Banyan-Team and Christoph spend their time in the streets of Southern India covering the needs, hopes, support and despair of people who have often lost all hope, who have become victims of social violence and who need support and a home.

The result were dozens of touching encounters, interviews and insights into problems so easily forgotten...
