Maria Prean • 54m
The amazing story of missionary Maria Prean is told in this award-winning documentary by Janina Huettenrauch. Maria was 60 years old when she decided to start a new life. She moved from Austria to Uganda, a country with more than two million orphans. Seeing the great need, she began caring for these children and building schools and orphanages. Despite great challenges, her strong faith and conviction helped her to change the lives of thousands of young Ugandans. Available subtitles: English and Finnish
To build a bridge between Africa and the Western World, she started a children's choir at one of her schools. She and 15 children toured Europe for three months, touching the lives of many people they met along the way. This is an encouraging and very personal film about a woman who dreamed the impossible, then trusted God to do everything necessary to see it become reality.
