SUTTON, Q.B., Nov. 19 /CSRwire/ - Supporters of the work of NGOs and UN agencies will have their very own Netflix-style film-streaming service as of December 1, 2013. Available worldwide, Humanity Strong Films will feature documentaries focusing on human rights, humanitarian crises and environmental conservation.

The service will offer a minimum of 250 films at any given time. Titles will be reviewed monthly and updated frequently, allowing subscribers to stay in-the-know about pertinent issues of interest to all. Initial titles will include Living in Emergency, the Oscar-shortlisted story of four Doctors Without Borders volunteers, and Shady Chocolate, an investigation into child-labour practices within the chocolate industry.

“These are carefully selected films about real life and real stories,” says Humanity Strong founder Patrick Bonneville. “And the ‘stars’ are NGO workers and UN staff and activists. They’re ordinary people standing up for Earth, wildlife and human rights. In other words, humanity fighters.”

Yearly subscriptions to Humanity Strong Films will be priced at $4.95 per month. NGO and UN staff and supporters can take advantage of a 50 per cent discount (amounting to $2.49/month for one year), available with the promotional code HumanityFighter13.
