In August 2013, we visited the country of Liberia to check on the progress of water well drilling projects, visit villages who don't have access to clean water yet and visit villages who had been provided a clean water source. This video was shot in a village called Shermantown. Shermantown had just recently been provided with a clean water source and while we were there a few of the villagers took us down to where they used to draw their water from. The man that you'll see at the end of the video holding the Vitalis water bottle and the bottle of water drawn from the old water source is the villages "Well Commissioner" in charge of overseeing the proper care and use of the newly provided fresh water pump. Please visit vitaliswater.com to see how you can get involved in providing clean water for villages just like this in the country of Liberia.
