Default A video to make you cry for our beautiful country

The following link is to a video about how "The Smile Train" - a not-for-profit organization is helping kids born with clefts by providing free surgeries. The 2nd link (further below) is to the organization's website.

Watching the video stirred many emotions in me. I'm a bangladeshi who grew up and still lives abroad, but my identity is bangladesh becoz my parents have instilled our culture in me. Sometimes it is easier to forget about bangladesh and all its troubles, but after watching the video I felt a rush of overwhelming love for my country flood my soul. I felt sad and hopeful and happy at the same time. Maybe it will stir different feelings in you, but I recommend you guys watch the video.

Except the rural scenario, rest part of the video is recorded in India. It's kinda misleading.

The appeal is very touchy, but the overall video is really poor and lacks authenticity.

This video was made with the single purpose of raising donation... they did not care about anything else.
