The short documentary, produced by the Iowa United Nations Association, showcases the experiences of Iowa Wesleyan College students who survived on limited water for five days. The project was an experiential service learning component of the Positive Psychology class.

The premiere is free and open to the public. Free will donations will be accepted to benefit global safe water projects through the Iowa United Nations Association and Water Our Thirsty World.

After the short film, have dinner at one of the 5 restaurants who are participating in the UNICEF Tap Project:
Little Mexico
Breadeaux Pizza
de Brito
Maid-Rite Diner

These restaurants have agreed to ask patrons to participate in the Tap Project by donating $1 for their tap water they usually enjoy for free with their dinner. All funds raised with the Tap Project support UNICEF’s efforts to provide safe, clean water to children and families around the world.

Just $1 will provide safe water to a child for 40 days!
