    How does conflict damage national health?

    To lead happy healthy lives people need food, clean water, shelter and sanitation, and a functioning healthcare system. But what happens when these are broken by conflict and war?
    In 1918, as the First World War ended, a deadly new virus, which became known as the Spanish Flu, began to spread across Europe. If quickly infected a third of the world’s population, killing up to 100 million people in a single year, more than both World Wars combined.
    In 2018, a brutal civil war together with a land and sea blockage, has driven up food prices and forced 18 million Yemenis towards malnutrition. Rates of malnutrition in Yemen are now 50 percent higher than before the war, and almost half of deaths in children under five are caused by a lack of food.

  2. This pop-inspired animated film was made for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation by Esther Lalanne, produced by Steve Smith for Beakus.
    The campaign, to rebuild the global fashion industry following the principles of EMF's circular economy, was launched in May 2018 by Dame Ellen MacArthur and Stella McCartney. Waste in the fashion industry is rampant, from garment threads, to energy waste and landfill use. Make Fashion Circular is committed to changing that from the inside, and our film condenses the idea in to a short, cool film using photography and collage animation.
    Voiced by Lydia Wilson, we hope the film will be seen far and wide.
