A Shortfilm for Children with Bladderexstrophy

Play Video
Thanks to Associazione Italiana Estrofia Vescicale Epispadia Onlus there now is an ITALIAN VERSION of the video!

This film is for all kids born with bladder exstrophy! It explains the congenital disorder in an understandable and respectful way and is a useful aid for parents, family, carers and teachers. The film also wants to encourage affected kids to be self-confident, brave and curious - just like kids should be!

The film is based on the German children's book DER BESTE TAUCHER DER WELT. Available here.
