HQ VIDEO – Bangladesh: Many Rivers to Cross

A year or so ago, I was listening to my iPod in an auto-rickshaw when I heard this song by Jimmy Cliff. I felt it resonated with some of the sad sights around me, and I often left it on repeat.  Eventually I decided to make a video.  This one will be followed by a second, again featuring Jimmy Cliff –  “Wonderful World, Beautiful People.”  This video presents one side of Bangladesh in 2012, but it’s important not to just leave it at that. But I do hope it conveys the levels of suffering many Bangladeshis face on a daily basis. Development in almost every sector is critical.
