Description : Through the words of those who have borne the brunt of Afghanistan's devastating conflicts, this film looks back on 20 years of uninterrupted International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) presence in the country. Both beneficiaries and local staff describe the profound impact the ICRC's dedicated work has had on their lives and on those of their fellow countrymen from all ethnic and religious backgrounds. The extensive programmes that have been conducted from 1987 to 2007 to provide assistance to mil-lions of war victims are featured in the film. Through its range of activities, the ICRC learns of the real problems faced by Afghans and becomes attuned to their hopes and dreams. The film reflects how in today's polarized world, the ICRC's neutral and independent humanitarian action in countries like Afghanistan faces growing challenges.
