Despite being surrounded by water, nine million Filipinos lack access to safe water. This number significantly increases when natural disaster strikes. Fidel, 30, from the Philippines, is creating mobile and adaptable water purifying systems that can be used by communities both in case of disaster relief or for normal water supply.
