Once in Afghanistan (2008)

From Web Site: "We walked in on weddings, on funerals... whatever was going on and vaccinated everyone."

Returned Peace Corps Volunteers recall their experiences as female members of Afghan male vaccinator teams in the late 60s. The women vividly recall trying to convince the women to be vaccinated and their dependence on the Afghan counterparts and the people in the villages.
Their stories and photographs go behind the walls where people of completely different backgrounds could recognize one another in spite of their differences. In a world in which messages of hate travel faster than ever before, this is a message of understanding. 2008 70 minutes
