About The Project
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” - Fred Rogers
In the wake of ongoing war and terror throughout parts of the Middle East, countless incredible stories of bravery and compassion arise from humanitarians, community leaders, and every-day people. "In Terror's Wake" is our project to find these unsung heroes, and take you to share in their experience. In order to undertake this, our team will travel to various countries in the Middle East to film a virtual reality documentary of compassion in the wake of conflict. In order to do this, we are currently fundraising across a variety of mediums to make an impact through this project that no other awarness project has been able to, by immersing people into the reality of the region.
