Water: Donetsk's Lifeline

Volunteers supply water to Donbass under shelling

Ukrainian armed forces deliberately target water towers cutting off water supply for Donbass residents. For almost a year people have been facing the everyday challenge of finding water to survive. One day 9-year-old Elnur Kunov saw an old lady who was crying and carrying empty water cans. Despite being just a child, Elnur felt the desire to help the woman and hundreds of other people in need. He inspired his dad to start a humanitarian mission. Father and son together look for water and deliver it to people in shelled areas that are out of reach of other relief efforts and help them to get water. Watch the film to see how courageous volunteers deliver water often at their own peril.
