Finding Water
directed by Brendan O'Brien | Canada, 33 minutes

In north-western Kenya, one of the driest places on Earth, lies the UNHCR Kakuma Refugee Camp. Home to roughly 200,000 refugees, and another 150,000 locals living nearby, getting enough fresh, clean water is one of the major struggles of daily life. In 2016, a team of Canadian geoscientists travelled there to try to find more sources of fresh water.
