      Water é uma basic need, but in some poor communities and rural areas é preciso walk long distances para encontra-la.

      Women and children encarregam-se de buscar water, mas acabam desenvolvendo problems in their backs and necks.

      Até que, one day, Piet Hendriske and his brother invented um plastic cylinder atravessado por um hole, pelo qual passa uma rope.

      Feito em resistant plastic, the cylinder tornou a activity de transport water bem mais easy.

      This simple object foi batizado de Q Drum e está mudando a life de many people in Africa e around the world.
