Despair and Hope A documentary series by Christoph von Toggenburg - 30 min.

In 2010 Christoph went to South India to support a National Awareness campaign about mentally destitute women in connection with 'The Banyan', India's largest organisation for mentally destitute women. The Banyan Team and Christoph spend their time in the streets of Southern India covering the needs, hopes and despair of women who have often lost all hope. In many cases, these women have been victims of social violence and in need of support and a home.

The result were dozens of touching encounters, interviews and insights into problems so easily ignored...
