Leading financial institution, Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank) Plc, has released a short film titled A Mother Knows.
The new film, according to information at our disposal, was shot to raise awareness on Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in Nigeria.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), one in 160 children live with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) worldwide.
In Nigeria, however, the condition is hardly diagnosed, rarely understood and children with ASD often suffer neglect and stigmatization.
To address these challenges, GTBank launched the Orange Ribbon Initiative to support children and adults living with Autism and other developmental disorders.
The film, A Mother Knows, is part of the GTBank’s effort in addressing the neglect and stigmatization of children living with autism face, daily.
A Mother Knows tells the story of a young boy growing up with autism and the impact of the condition on his family as they raise him.
