At first blush Hội An (Vietnam) appears a prosperous hub for trade and tourism. Look deeper and you'll find people living in extreme poverty, including children with disabilities who receive very little in terms of social assistance. Children's Hope in Action (CHIA) operate out of the coastal town to provide support services to disadvantaged and disabled children and their families that are typically facilitated by government in wealthier countries. Production duo Bill Bycroft and Rachel Turner shot this short profile about CHIA for Impolitikal while travelling through Vietnam in late 2015. Find out how the organisation is changing lives in Hội An in tangible ways.
