The leading housing and relief charity Habitat for Humanity International (http://www.habitat.org) has appointed Goodwork (www.thisisgoodwork.org) to produce a series of films and multimedia packages to showcase the work it is doing in Africa and Central Asia.
Goodwork camera teams and producers have shot a total of nine films in diverse locations including Lesotho, Malawi, Ethiopia and Tajikistan. The films will be used on Habitat’s website and will be shown directly to donors, to explain the housing issues being faced in these countries and the direct impact their donations have on individuals and communities.
“If people understood the scale of housing poverty and homelessness in Africa and the across the former Soviet Republics in Central Asia, they’d be shocked,” said Chris Sorek, EMEA Marketing and Communications Director, Habitat for Humanity International.
“The Goodwork teams have done an excellent job. Storytelling and content marketing are key. Their immersive multimedia packages clearly communicate the issues through film, photography, infographics and words in a compelling format that draws attention and proposes practical recommendations,” he said.
Goodwork’s Managing Director Sean Curtis-Ward said, “It’s been a real pleasure working with the Habitat communications team. Some of the locations have been challenging, but that’s what we do. We have a lot of experience of shooting stories in difficult to reach locations. What Habitat does exactly fulfils our brief to promote good work in the world. Providing safe and secure homes for people certainly fits that bill. We look forward to working with Habitat again in the future.”
