The video is an adaptation of the fairy tale of the Pied Piper, who stole away the children of the town of Hamelin after the town's leaders did not keep their promises to him.

The first five years of a child's life are the most important to ensuring a healthy future. However, millions of children don't even have a chance to survive those first five years. Find out how you can help children to Survive 5 through World Vision's global campaign - Child Health Now.
Every year 6.9 million children under the age of five lose their lives to preventable illnesses like pneumonia and diarrhoea. We know the causes and we know the simple and cost effective treatments that will save these lives. All we need is will. Join hands so all children can Survive 5.
In explaining the complex issues of child undernutrition World Vision Australia gave the classic Peter Pan fairytale a powerful twist.
