Pierce Brosnan’s son Paris creates short film on Sri Lankan experience

29 May 2019 - 1610   - 0

Pierce Brosnan's son Paris recently traveled to Sri Lanka to document firsthand how one program is making a  difference in the lives of both local children and on the region’s economy.

“Travelling to Sri Lanka was an amazing opportunity for a young filmmaker,” says Paris, who captured in a short film and in photographs the ongoing work being done in the South Asian island country by the UN World Food Programme (WFP).

With crucial support from Clarins and FEED, a social impact-driven brand founded by Lauren Bush Lauren, WFP is delivering nutritious food to Sri Lankan school-aged children.

“I was drawn to Clarins and FEED’s mission to help solve childhood hunger through school feeding,” Paris tells PEOPLE. “This school meals program gives children a sense of belonging, community, and an education.”

While in Sri Lanka, Paris visited schools and farms to see up close how WFP connects local farmers with its meals program that ultimately helps both undernourished students and supports the local economy.

Launched in 2011, the FEED and Clarins partnership has supported organizations like WFP, helping fund over 30 million school meals by the end of this year. This year, the partnership is focused on Sri Lanka.
