We hope you all had a wonderful summer. July and August were wonderful months for WeOwnTV and the Freetown Media Centre. We wanted to send you all another heartfelt thank for everyone who supported the WeSurvive: Stories of the Ebola outbreak project during the July Bonus day. Your support, together with the generous match, helped us meet our $10,000 goal! The team back in Sierra Leone has already begun working on the final translations. We are so grateful for you support and honored to be working together with Emory University on this importunity project.
I am also thrilled to announce that earlier this month, we received an Emmy Nomination for SURVIVORS for Outstanding Social Issue Documentary. Here is a note I wanted to share with you all from the films' Director, Arthur Pratt:
"This project has been a journey of a life time. Little did I know that our response to this health crisis would put our countrymen on the world stage. When I received the news of Survivors been nominated for an Emmy Award in the category of best ‘Social Impact documentary’ I thought of all the generous support we have received over the years to get us here. I sincerely believe that this nomination and all that is to follow equally belongs to our supporters, to those who died and ALL those who fought and continue to put their lives at risk to end the spread of Ebola in Africa. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
And thank you to all of you, who supported us during the production of SURVIVORS and who have continues to support us as we deepen the impact of this project through the WeSurvive: Stories of the Ebola outbreak project. It has also been a journey of a lifetime for myself, who met Arthur and the rest of the team at the Freetown Media Centre ten years ago in 2009. I had no doubt their compassion and creativity would lead to this type of recognition and I am proud to continue to keep supporting their efforts and this importnat work.
