    In this interview with Bishop Martin Mtumbuka of the Malawian diocese of Karonga, we get behind the headlines to find out about life in a newly-formed and, in parts, remote Catholic diocese in the north of the country. In this extended interview we discuss socio-economic issues in Malawi, women's rights, the Catholic community, relations with other religions and logistical issues ministering to the faithful. We also learn about a very detached part of the diocese where the community has no access to roads, schools, hospitals or state structures of any sort. The staple diet of the people is believed to be beer! This video is a fly-on-the-wall recording of a 'Catholic News' podcast. www.catholicnews.org.uk

          After one of the Philippine's most destructive typhoons, ActionAid champions women who lead with determination - and laughter... This video was shot three months after Typhoon Yolanda (or Haiyan) on northern Cebu island in the Philippines. Fortunately for those I met, it wasn't the worst hit area. Nonetheless, from women's accounts of the experience it was clear the trauma was still very real. And the cost of rebuilding - often involving amassing debt - remains a huge cause of stress for families who were merely scratching by even before the disaster. Since the typhoon struck, ActionAid has been working to support women leaders across the storm-hit region to rebuild their communities.

Older people are a valuable resource and we work with partners all over the world to ensure people everywhere understand how much older people contribute to society and that they must enjoy their right to healthcare, social services and economic and physical security.

                  Making it simple, not simplistic The European Union is the most generous donor of development aid worldwide. But quantity does not equate to quality. In Spring 2012, the European Commission has endorsed its Agenda for Change, setting out a more strategic approach to reducing poverty, including a more targeted allocation of funding. ABOUT THE VIDEO Yes, complex policies can be explained in a simple manner, and at the same time be aesthetically attractive! This animation was produced in collaboration with our partner Kiwano Motion, whose talented animators made an impressive illustration work in record time (two weeks).
