1 in 100 Belgians stutter. Which is a lot. But stuttering can be overcome. And Agency Famous proved it along with a professional coach.
Jordy has been stuttering for 25 years but was coached to become a professional radio voice-over.

This documentary made for the Belgium Stuttering People Advocacy Group is an honest and hopeful story for many people who stutter. The Belgium organisation made a dedicated site, both in Dutch and English, with this documentary. It can best be described as a therapy campaign. The main target audience is not the general public but the stutterers themselves.

‘See Me’ is a poem which has been found among the belongings of a deceased woman in a nursing home. It is a heart breaking call to be seen.
The staff of the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care was so impressed with the message that they edited the poem and offered the poem for distribution
Dutch care organization Omring made a video of the poem with music and Dutch subtitles.

Recently I showed this video that I think it is the best video ever made about healthcare. That video is about one word: empathy.
This video is called ‘Food sequence’ and is part of the documentary Samsara. Samsara is Sanskrit for “wheel of life”.
And in our time, this also includes this kind of food production.
This video isn’t new but so powerful that it shouldn’t be missing here. And is much more impressive than all campaigns from Peta together
