A SUNSHINE Coast screening of a film about modern-day slavery tomorrow could make a difference in the lives of someone in a Third World country.

Money raised from the screening of At the End of Slavery: The Battle for Justice in Our Time will go towards charity work in Vietnam and Cambodia.

The screening, at Burnside State High School Conference Centre, has been organised by the Make a Difference project.

The project, which began in Maleny, aims to make a difference in the world through small changes.

Liila Phillips, of Marcoola, has been making a difference in Vietnam for the past 10 years.

Ms Phillips, 59, raises money throughout the year to put towards needy projects and families in Vietnam as advised by Red Cross branches in those countries.

She has raised money to build 30 houses, supported 78 children's schooling, and assisted other Vietnamese with mobility issues.

Ms Phillips extended her trip this year to Cambodia, where she was able to distribute 300 stuffed toys to children, buy new blankets and pillows for children in an orphanage, and pay for new schoolbags, uniforms, shoes and bicycles for 10 high school children.

She said $1000 could build a house for a Vietnamese family while $100 could outfit a Cambodian child for school.

"A little goes a long way in these countries," she said.

At the End of Slavery: The Battle for Justice in Our Time, covers modern-day slavery from the brothels of the Philippines to the brickworks of India.

Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Admission is $10, which includes tea, coffee and light snacks.

Bookings are essential on 5450 6081 or email liilaishere@yahoo.com.
