Silent Elephant Project - Why ME?

A little while ago I was lucky enough to meet the incredibly talented and kind Kondwani Chirwa.

Kondwani and the Silent Elephant Project recently released a  short film - Why ME? - to raise awareness of M.E/C.F.S (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).

"Kyle, a high achiever who loves playing basketball, is looking to make a good impression on the scout coming to school. Will he be able to make it?"

ME, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), affects around 250,000 people in the UK.

ME/CFS is a life limiting condition that can affect the mental health of those diagnosed with the illness and can be hard to accept.

If you have been affected by this issue as a sufferer or carer, you can get support and advice from:

ME Association: https://www.meassociation.org.uk/

Helpline: 0344 576 5326

You can view the film on YouTube at this link.
