In mid January 2015, a three day period of excessive rain brought unprecedented floods to the small poor African country of Malawi. It displaced nearly quarter of a million people, devastated 64,000 hectares of land, and killed several hundred people. This shot shows a specialist truck that takes water straight from the river and purifies it to drinking standards, which is then used in the many flood refugee camps in the Shire valley.
