A film crew in Uganda is able to build a clean water system for an orphanage, home to over fifty children, in less than a day. A special filter improves the quality and safety of their water, allowing for higher output at reduced cost.

Director Statement

This film was an absolute blessing to make. We originally traveled to Uganda to film a story on Derrick - the gentleman who started this orphanage. Despite any prior intention, planning, and minimal resources, we were lucky enough to be able to build this clean water system in less than a day. This filter not only improves the quality and safety of their water but allows for higher volume output while reducing the cost of clean water.
