Life in a country that is falling apart

I am often thoughtful of how fortunate we are in the UK to have access to food, housing, education, healthcare – the basic necessities of life – and that it's so easy to forget that the vast majority of people on this planet don't experience quite the same comforts or security.

Save the Children have done a powerful follow up to a video they made last year, taking a similar concept but using the hidden camera approach, turning the tables on our cushy Western existence.

It's sobering to think how our everyday lives become so disrupted when we can't take our kids to school, buy simple items in the shops or get our loved ones to hospital.

No wonder people are clamouring to get into Europe by any means necessary, desperate for their families to live in a place of relative safety. If we were in their shoes we'd do exactly the same thing...
