A Model Humanitarian

1x50'

Photo: Maximal Productions

At the age of 8, Tasha de Vaconcelos fled the civil war in Mozambique. The daughter of Anglo-Portuguese aristocrats, she ended up in Canada where she launched a successful career as a supermodel. But she never forgot her native Africa. Her concern for its suffering people has stayed with her all these years. Working with international aid organizations and her own charity for mothers and orphans with HIV/AIDS, Tasha has devoted herself to making a difference in the lives of those in need. Our cameras follow her emotional journey as she visits a care facility in Malawi and returns to the house where she grew up to find old friends long feared dead. Her home may be in Monaco and her glamorous work may take her all over the planet, but her heart will always remain in Africa.
