a bottle of filtered water and a bottle of unfiltered water

The Story

The mother knew her water source was contaminated and causing her children to be sick. But she had no other place to draw water from. She tried to boil the water before drinking, but if there was no firewood available that day, there was no way to protect her children from disease. This all changed when some people brought a bio-sand filter to her community.

Imagine you own literally nothing, then to be given something so personal, so needed and yet so basic.
