Save the Children have released another advert that brings international devastation right to our door. What would civil war be like in the UK?

Two weeks ago we wrote about an advert from Save the Children that shows a real birth scene in order to raise awareness of the need for trained midwives. The charity are clearly on an all out offensive as they’ve also just released this advert. Another powerful film that brings international problems right to our doorstep.

The execution shows a young, British girl who’s part of a family life that we all recognise from our own experiences. But we begin to see what happens to this girl, in just one second a day, when Britain plunges into a civil war much like the one happening in Syria currently. The video seeks out our empathy, making the devastating situation far more real for us.
